Is there a way to differentiate between Lyme and Ringworm? Neighbors child has a circular rash (not bullseye) on upper calf.

They are treating him for ringwork with a prescribed cream.

They live in the same neighborhood and have seen ticks on children and in house.

Hello,
I got the EM around may 2 and still have the spot where the tic was removed.
You might get a magnafying glass and see if you could see a spot where the tic fed.Maybe you would see it?

Good evening DJP,

I had what I THOUGHT were multiple ringworm rashes for many years. They didn't bother me that much, so I ignored them-

BIG MISTAKE!

TBD rashes come in many shapes and sizes.

My best,
M
