Does the rash appear anywhere on the body?

Or at the site of the tick attachment?

Does it itch?

The rash will be where you got bit--

I have heard that later on rashes can show
up in different places --

But personally I dont think this is accurate-

The rash is where you got bit. I got bit on the back of my knee and then a week later got one on my upper arm. I'm one of the 10% where I had more than one bullseye. Get it checked out by a llmd right away and don't waste time with a regular doctor.

good luck!

It can be anywhere, and it can itch or not itch. If you have it you need to treat, regardless of what any test says.

It does, and your symptoms are those of early infection too.

I was bitten on my forearm and a spectacular bullseye rash appeared on my calf a few weeks later.

the rash can absolutely show up in other places besides where you were bitten.
