Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


I got a tic bite and removed it within the same day 12 days ago. I now have a rash like a bullseye around the bite. It is bumpy, red, warm and itchy. I have taken a pic of it with a penny next to it like I read was recommended. I will go to the doc in the morning-there is a LLMD 5 hours away, but hopefully, I won't need to make that drive and all will heal just fine after I visit my PCP.
I have been researching on the internet for about 2 hours and have found this site very helpful. One thing I heard from a friend who visited my PCP about a possible tic bite was that he (the doc) said that you cannot get Lyme disease from a tic that was removed within 24 hours of the tic getting attached to you. Fact or fiction?
TIA!
