Is flush feeling in the face due to a tick bite?

I have a very flush feeling in my face. itr started about 28 hours ago. My eyes feel like they are sun burned. Could this be from a tick bite I got about a week ago ? Also it seemed to start after I drank a drink of turmeric and black pepper. Not sure but my face feels like it is sunburned, but it isn t sunburned at all.

Hi, I have a rash that seemed to start with itchy shoulders I thought it was just from being out in the sun, this lasted about a month, then I ended up with a tick bite on my right thigh, not sure how long it was there, the tick was imbedded pretty deep. I was able to get it out but then my rash spread to my forarms and was very itchy. It was a welted rash that got worse when I would go outside in the heat. It ended up spreading to my chest , under my breast , my stomach and on my thighs between my legs. I went to the doc and they ended up treating me for scabbies, and an antibiotic for lymes just in case. I ended up with a horrible reaction to the antibiotic a week later and quick taking it. They also ended up prescribing me a topical antibiotic. The rash now a little over a week later covers my inner forarms, up under my arms pits, my chest and my inner thighs. It is scabby looking now with some of the bumps with deep centers that are black in color. I have some on the sides of my hands that are really deep. I still feel the flushy itchy feeling when I do outside so I am just advoiding it. I am hoping it heals on its own now but I am worried that I dont know what it is. No on else in the family has gotten it and I am married and sleep in the same bed as my husband. I have photos but dont see where I can upload them.

Had a tick bite on the back of my leg behind the knee. My husband removed it, the whole tick. I continued to swell in the area for a month, so I went to the doctor. The doctor lanced it and said there was nothing left of the tick, just puss came out when she lanced it. Gave me an antibiotic. Three weeks later, it still itches. How can I get it to quit itching? The swelling is going down.
