Tick bite. Raised spot, red. Normal?
Two days ago I was working in my yard and hauling mulch from a family members house to my own. On the way home I felt a stinging sensation on my leg. Once I raises up my leg I noticed I had a tick on me. Without thinking I grabbed the tick with my fingernails and yanked it out. It was still alive...
I have a bite on the back of my calf. It has a red circle around, the inside of the circle has turned a white color with a red dot in the middle. The bite is the size of a dime. Online I compared it to pictures of a tick bite and spider bite. It looks like a tick bite to me. People are telling me to go to the doctor is that what I should do?
The lesion you describe could be a bite from a tick transferring a pathogen called Borrelia. This infection is called Lyme disease.
