Bit by Tick on Sunday

Hi - I removed a tic from the back of my leg on Sunday and have developed what sort of looks like a bulls eye where the tick bit me. I am not sure if it is just irritation from the bite or something to worry about. Tick was probably on me no longer then 24 hrs. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Bit by Tick on Sunday

Hi Papagn. Welcome to the board! I would book an appt with an LLMD as soon as possible. It will be hard to find one who is covered by your insurance and who has an available appt but it is crucial. It is very good that you caught this early. There are a lot of people here in NJ so if you search this board or start a new thread with the looking for LLMD in NJ title, you'll get a response. there are a couple places in New York too. Don't fool around with other doctors. Most do not treat Lyme to really get rid of it and many do not really admit that Lyme exists. There are several threads here that Ticker posted her welcome message to. It has info on symptoms, how to do your own research (you will) and other important info.
Good luck on your quest to stay healthy!
