You have made no mention of tick allergy which can lead to an allergy to all mammalian meat. This has been an increasing issue on the Australian east coast but all should be aware of it. How one removes the tick such that it doesn’t inject more into the bite is imperative. https://www.allergy.org.au/patients/insect-allergy-bites-and-stings/tick-allergy
