I was "checking" mine just earlier and found what I thought was a zit or something at first, turned out to be a tick

Tried scraping it off but obviously that didn't work, took a lighter and boiled its ass until it disintegrated, turned all mushy after I took the hot piece of metal of a lighter and held it onto the tick 3 times, then I scraped it away. Not sure if I got the head but all I see is a tiny open wound, took a wet baby wipe, soaked with mouthwash and cleaned the area with it. Antiseptic mouthwash so I'm hoping I'm good now lol. Damn nature, stay away from my balls.

It went better than I expected, I thought I was going to burn the hell out of myself, but I managed to keep it just on the tick and all it did was sting a little. It was either risk burning myself, or let the little parasitic prick live.

Oh and I don't know about all that, I never fought in a war, so I wouldn't call myself tough, especially not tougher than you. Plus I have no health insurance so I don't feel like having a couple hundred dollar doctor visit just to remove a little thing off my nuts lol.

It sounds like you were carrying a crab or a bedbug... Bedbugs are ectoparasites that are reaching epidemic proportions all over the country...You need to seek medical treatment and find out what type of ectoparasite that you had(have), and take control of the situation by disinfecting and exterminating all possible stages of those parasites in your home, bed, and clothing!!
good luck

Thank you for your concern, but it was light grey, with a light green tint to it or something... I'm hoping it was just a tick, looked like the same kinds I saw on Google.

Invest in some tweezers and make sure you get the head off.
