@burcinc-- The antibiotic ointment should do the trick. If it's painful, swollen and itchy, applying a cold compress and aloe vera gel will help.
We have a lot of ticks around here too and I get bitten at least once or twice every summer. If you pull ticks out yourself, you should clean the area with soap and water and some rubbing alcohol afterward to kill germs.
If you get a tick bite rash, which has happened to me before, corticosteroid cream helps. But if things look bad, do see the doctor like the other poster suggested.
