This is tough without seeing the rash. Look at our section on Lyme for good pictures of the typical rash. In general, the Lyme rash should be greater than 5 cm in diameter. It does not have the have the typical bullseye pattern and a bullseye pattern doesn’t always mean that it is Lyme disease.
Symptoms of Lyme Disease?
My question is concerning Lyme disease. about 3 weeks ago I developed an itch on my neck. it felt as though I must have gotten bitten. however i could detect no site where it looked as if i had been bitten. this area itched and hurt at the same time much like a spider bite i’d had. however I could seen nothing. inside my throat area almost seems affected as well. it comes and goes now and if heat is applied to the area I can see a red circular area. Does this sound like lyme tick bite? I have no insurance and don’t know if it is something I should have looked at. I sure hope you are able to give me some insight on this.
