Yes. It came and went three time, getting larger and expanding over 2 or 3 days each time. The third time, the time I was diagnosed, was the largest. It expanded to about 8"x3". All three had very faint central clearing.

NO

Only a feeling of a hot swollen instep in my teens. It went away, and nothing further was thought about it.

then at 30 a MS diagnosis!

that was 20 years ago.

I did fine the tick on me.

Yes; I had a bullseye following a tick bite.

Showed it to several people, including a very Lyme savvy high school science teacher at the high school where I worked. All concurred. Went to PCP, suspecting Lyme, the nurse didn't even bother to look at it when I suggested she do; they didn't do a Lyme test, but did send the tick out for analysis--came back negative. They prescribed three days worth of ABX "as a precaution" Little did I know that the bullseye was such a clear indicator of Lyme infection! I wanted to believe I only needed a "precaution".

A year later, due to severe knee pain and swelling, they did do Lyme testing which came back positive. So I am in late stage Lyme, and early stage treatment. Just before the 21 days on ABX were up, I went to an LLMD, who gave me another 21 day prescription, and ordered lots of tests for coinfections. I am waiting on the results of those. LLMD also speculates that I was infected long ago, as well as a more recent infection. This is likely, since my house is completely surrounded by woods, where my dogs and I have walked for 25 years.

Mine is a good case of "I wish I knew then what I know now." sigh.

RAsh from a tick ..
NO


but I can tell you I had rashes on almost every part of my body and in places I don't see hardly.. they can be itchy or not.. they can be scaley or not.. flaky burning.. large or small.. but they have been there and they don't go away too easily.. but if you are talking about a bulls eye rash NEVER.. out of the 7 members in my family with Lyme only one member had a bullseye rash..

hoep this helps.. and might I add:
I was the only one in the family who showed a positive ELSIA also.. I was also the only one who had to go on ABX for chronic sinus infections.. and after running some MRI of my sinus cavity they found I do not have sinus infections ..my cavity was clear.. even though ym nose was always stuffed and I always appeared to have "junky" congestion to lead them to think I had pneumonia but the film showed NOTHING There!!!

so they refuse to treat with antibiotics after that

TG I was DX'd with Lyme shortly after this or I may not have had orals and I would no longer be alive....

Medical field is so not in agreement with much and they are still proving they are wrong in statements they swore were correct 20 years ago.. they find they are wrong 20 years later..
And we are supposed to trust these people to treat us???

I think not, therefore I am!

Now think about that statement for a few minutes.

I think not, therefore I am...

I am lost in a mirage of misconception and that statement can be taken in so many different ways.. from the very negative to the somewhat positive.. depending on how you look at it..

It may become a lyme linked quote in the not too distant future... LOL
[Eek!]
lets see if I can get a trend going here...

Bullseye rash: NO

Baseball sized red rash with insect bite mark in center: Yes in 2001 after a camping trip.

Other skin rashes: Yes possible ACA. 6 months after a trip to the Ozarks in 1969 it looked like my hands were dipped in battery acid. The rash never healed with hydrocortisone but responded to the ABX I was given for chronic ear infections.

Growing up on the East end of Long Island, I remember having lots of ticks--my dad always took them out of my hair.

I never saw a rash, though.

Yes, I had a "bullseye" rash. The thing that was apparently unusual was that, though I had several deer ticks and one was engorged, the rash actually appeared around the point where there had been a dog tick. Thus the "duck brigade is WRONG about yet another thing...

No.

I did have some strange rashes though.

1985 - an itchy rash on my left forearm, diagnosed incorrectly as 'scabies' and later 'eczema' - a steroid cream cleared it up.

1989 - an itchy rash covering both ankles - no medication used.

I also don't believe I got this from ticks. I got mine from fleas and mosquitos. I DID remove fleas from me.

Not a bulls eye but a 4 inch oblong, very hot & swollen area surrounding the bite. I assumed I'd left the head in when I pulled the tick out and had an infection. Took photos and used some neosporin & peroxide. Got so bad I couldn't walk and had to go to the doctor.

Other tick bites - no rashes.

Yes; Clear bulls eye.

The nurse practitioner was uninterested in seeing it; treated me "as a precaution" for three days of ABX. My ignorance accepted this as appropriate, and was falsely relieved to know we 'caught it in time'. javascript:void(0)

A year later, and I'm in the thick of symptoms... took doxy for six weeks, and now 2 months later, some symptoms are returning, and I have an appointment scheduled with LLMD next month.

Yes, one classic bull's eye rash after working in the garden in South Carolina. Never got sick, had a negative western blot so the doc decided it was a spider bite. We got dozens of tick bites in the 30 years we lived there and never figured out that we were getting gradually sicker and sicker.

I did not get a rash or bulls eye when I was first bitten, but I did see the tick and knew what it was!

1995 broke out with 90% of my body in "hives" after a root canal.

Some where bullseyes and some not.

Some the size of dinner plates. Some lasted over 4 weeks and faded to bruise-like marks.

Some itched and some not. Some were hot and most were raised and red.

I still get a raised itchy whelt on my forehead in the same spot for the last 12 years. I also get them on my head, upper back and behind my ears.

I saw my family doctor, an allergist, a dermatologist, an immunologist at a leading hospital and no one ever suggested LD.

Now I have all the signs and symptoms. Had positive test in March 2006.

No rash, no bullseye. But did go to doc to ask what this was. Diagnosis was probable tick bite. Was already on minocycline for skin so doc sent me on my way. Consequently, I never gave it another thought either. Just now found it in my records.

Yes, I got a huge rash on the top of my right foot two weeks after I got sick. It looked like ring worm. My doctor told me it was Granuloma Annular.(sp) I've seen pictures of Bart rash and I have that too.

No bullseye, but I have had other rashes.

Never saw a tick though.

Never saw a tick.

But i was out in my garden from March to November for a decade, and so were the deer and mice!

Yes, bulls-eye. Huge, covered half my thigh with clearing in the middle. Light pink.

But signs and symptoms suddenly, 9 years later.

Last 2 years, big brownish unformed rash on same thigh, off and on.

YES. Back of thigh. Then a raised, itchy, solid rash for next 3 weeks. Slowly faded.

No symptoms until 10 years later.

No rash and do not remember a tick at all. I have no idea when the bugger did the damage. Got sick suddenly in June 07 and my life has stopped...

Yes but it wasnt a bullseye. I had about 7 small circular rashes on butt area that went away in about a week. Thought nothing of it of course, even though I should have cause I have never EVER had anything on my skin; not even a pimple.

I had erythema migrans around my neck every spring the last six years. I thought they were ring worm and treated with anti-fungal.

I had a round red and ichy rash near my arm pit that stayed for about a month.

Three mos. later was stung by a bee near that same arm pit and it turned into a long oval bulls-eye rash.(I felt it was providence giving a sign for the doctor to wake-up and believe me.)

After being on Doxy for 13 days I developed a subsequent bulls-eye bruise on my ankle that itched. My LLMD said it was a classic bulls-eye rash most likely indicating the original bite site under my sock. My son took a picture because he thought it was from a brown recluse.

I WISH I HAD PICTURES OF ALL MY RASHES.
TAKE PICTURES!!!!! EVEN IF UNSURE IT IS LYME. EVEN IF IT IS FROM A BEE-STING THAT TURNED BULLS-EYE. TAKE PICTURES!!!!
