Slight rash under breasts, itching on left thigh, white bumps, tick bites. Treatment?

I got a tick bite three weeks ago on my leg. Rash was approximately quarter size. I have had Lyme in the past, very sick from it, treated twice after blood work confirmed it. Now, for two weeks the underside of my breasts have itched, have a slight rash there. Then two days ago I get itching on the back of my left thigh, and it is a rash, warm to the touch, and it has raised white bumps, no pus , no leakage,just itchy. I initially had chills, and slight fever for three or four days after the tick bite, which was on the front of my thigh, left side.

It seems that you are having lichen urticatus ..also called papular urticaria.

It is hypersensitive reaction to insects your case tick bite.

Take anti histaminics like levocetirizine till itching is relieved.

If needed, you may take steroids for short period.

Apply calamine lotion on lesions to sooth

Paracetamol may be taken if you have fever.

I hope you got my answer.
