Bump after tick bite

Common Questions and Answers about Bump after tick bite


Avatar m tn is a bump from a tick bite a normal reaction
Avatar f tn I ask because my 5 year old daughter has had almost the exact same thing happen to her. Tick bite in the same area, I extracted the entire tick, same type of tick (according to my spouse and a doctor we saw), she had a very random fever shortly after, then a surprisingly swollen lymph node appeared on the base of her hairline/neck about 2 inches from the tick bite site. Took her to urgent care and they offered to try to drain it, but was harmless...
Avatar f tn Is it normal to have a red bump on my leg after a tick bit me there or could I have possibly been infected by Lyme? Thanks any information is greatly appreciated!!!!!
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be an insect bite, contact dermatitis, boil or tick bite. Wash the bites with some antiseptic lotion or soap. Use cold water but avoid the use of warm or hot water as this may tend to stimulate itch. Secondly, apply a cold pack over the bites to reduce swelling. Please do not scratch the inflamed area as this may lead to open wounds and secondary infections.
Avatar f tn My right eye was red once(not sure from what)and I kept taking eye drops for it(it's gone now). Do you know how long after the bite you get symptoms? It was 2 1/2 months after I got bit when I've been sick,and am still sick. They prescribed me with antibiotics once they told me that my first results were borderline(took it for 2-3 days)and then they told me I didn't need to take it after the 2nd results were negative(so I stopped).
Avatar f tn it is often caused by tick bite and can cause bull’s eye pattern of rash. I suggest you to get an examination done from a dermatologist and get it evaluated. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if it was a tick, etc. Anyway, after that I noticed there was a bump where the bug was removed. The bump remained for a few days, and slowly disappeared however a dark spot still remains there. Now a few more raised bumps have been developing near that area on my upper back and shoulders, I even found one on the side of my neck. When I pick at them they sometimes flake in the center and are surrounded by a darker section. Any idea what this is?
Avatar f tn The other possibility if it is a circular lesion is of tick bite fever. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be an insect or an arthropod bite. Did you have a history of any tick bite recently? In that case bull’s eye pattern rash of tick bite should be ruled out. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g.
Avatar n tn I live in Las Vegas area, so there are a lot of options...Tick, spider, scorpion? Is it possible for a tick to get in skin and you not notice it? My amateur diagnosis was that i got bit directly on vein and the swelling caused the vein to be blocked somewhat and constantly full of blood. Thats only thing I can come up with as to why my vein would be hard at all times, i can follow it all the way to my stomach by resting my finger on it.
Avatar n tn initial skin reaction may be a reddish bump which may later present as a bluish bump due to the bite. Are there other similar bumps or skin conditions in other parts of the body?
Avatar n tn But, I did not notice the raised skin bump when I noticed the original black dot. I just noticed this, kind of raised skin after I roughed the area up a little bit. Could this be a genital wart? What other skin issue could this be? Thank you very much, I really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn last day i ate a bread and it smelled a little although i left it but already had a bite and the bump occur just after that, so i am guessing, it could be yeast. as i made a table of what I had all the time before it occurs and only bread was same item every time. if anybody have any answers do tell. Hope i helped.
Avatar n tn I had one spot that sounds the same as your discription - the black centre - mine was very close to 'tick bite' site - it was many months after the bite - before I had antibiotics - and it did eventually have some 'puss' in it - it took weeks to start to clear-up - but even now - there is still a red/purpleish mark there.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend had ivf and had to stay after at the clinic for 4 hours with her pelvic up. my clinic let me go after 30 minutes. that made me nervous. any thoughts.
Avatar f tn No stranger to wooded areas like this (wore layers, still chilly outside) A couple days after we had gone up there, I noticed my knee had a huge bump on it and it was red around the bump. I tried to ice it and not itch it ( because it itched like crazy) and I assumed it had just been a spider bite. A couple days went by and the bump looked like it was getting worse and my mom thought it was maybe an ingrown hair but couldnt find anything.
Avatar n tn I was biten by a tick about 3 days and I've become really ill since this has happened. The tick that bite me did not look like the black tick that supposedly carries the disease but I am not positive that it was not. I have a stiff neck, trouble thinking, trouble breathing, extremely tired, a quarter sized red bump under my right armpit, and have had diariah also.
Avatar f tn I am very paranoid, and I had no symptoms for the syphilis, BUT, I do remember a small tick biting me in 7eleven about 3 weeks ago. I was about to pay when I felt a small bite on my upper arm(shoulder). I remember seeing an insect which was about 3-4mm big. I also remember that its backside was inflated like a blister filled with blood and I just flicked it off. Is this the kind that causes Lyme disease. I've read on the internet that it takes about 36 hours of attachment to get infected.
Avatar f tn * can a tick bite do this? sorry for yhe type-o i am going crazy. my results said good then i find out 4 weeks is to soon ......
Avatar f tn Hi there! This could possibly be the usual reaction to a tick bite which leaves a bump on your skin that improves within a few days The purpura could probably be from the scratching rather and the color could be due to bleeding under the skin .This usually happens when you scratch with a lot of pressure. A mild red to deep purple rash could possibly be a rash of Lyme’s disease. It may appear in a few days, several weeks or a year after the bite.
1698711 tn?1306862140 By the way she never got Lyme disease from a Tick bite. When a Tick is removed, it is always wise to bathe the area thoroughly a few times afterwards with an antiseptic, even if it is removed well and entirely. It is also possible (though this doesn't happen as often as is commonly thought) that the Tick can carry Lyme disease or something similar which could cause the dog to have a feverish illness, and can cause arthritis afterwards.
Avatar n tn hi, can you describe the 'bump' around the bite area - I am sure I had similar thing in the area I was bitten. Your muscle spasms etc.
Avatar n tn But then rationally I think, what are the chances that a herpes bump shows up a day or two after I get bit by a tick in the exact same spot coupled with the neg test after about 4 months. I'm hoping a little more rationality on your part will help me. Thanks so much.
Avatar f tn I never did anything about it because I didn't know about lyme disease and I was a child so I thought it was a typical bug bite. I had another tick bite that was a big bruise type of rash 7 years ago. I don't have results yet, but I have questions. Is the bullseye rash always a sign of lyme disease or does that happen with any tick bite? Can you go years and years without ever knowing you have lyme disease?
1722607 tn?1335751458 A few days to a month before you have other symptoms, a small, red bump may appear at the site of the tick bite. Over the next few days, the redness expands, forming a rash in a bull's-eye pattern, with a red outer ring surrounding a clear area. The rash, called erythema migrans, is one of the hallmarks of Lyme disease. Some people develop several of these rashes, an indication of bacteria multiplying in the blood stream.
Avatar m tn These are people who are familiar with all the variations of what the bulls eye rash looks like. Also, be aware that you don't always have to have had a tick bite to contract Lyme disease.
162948 tn?1205256292 now am scared because I see that a lot of women have not been able to conceive after the mirena IUD removal... pls help!!! I have had it for 18 months and after all the crazy stories, I am thinking of having it removed :(.
Avatar f tn I have 8 days to my 1st beta test after my ET on Aug 12. Out of 11 mature eggs only 4 fert after icsi and only 1 viable embryo. I too had OHSS after egg retrieval and am really hoping that this works. So far no signs of period coming so keeping fingers crossed. Does anyone know how many days after ET a period will come if it didn't work?
