Brief Answer:
It could, but it's not typical

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

it could be a bull's eye rash but it's not the typical picture. Can you please inform me about the duration of the rash? When did you first see it and how fast did it evolve? Lyme disease rash needs a few days to develop and usually the are beyond the central area looses its redness gradually.

I'll be glad to give a more complete answer, when you provide more information.
