    Mine started with a tiny bite, no tick in site. Then became super hot and swollen. Doctor never told me what I was bit by.. ended up taking doxycycline for 5 days..it looked really bruised. Mine didn’t typically look like a bulls eye either, more of a red rash. Fast forward to a week..  little did I know I’ve been suffering for two entire months with what doctors call “anxiety”. I decided to take a Lyme test last week and I got the call today that I am indeed postive for Lyme disease!! Please please please get your daughter on antibiotics.. this has been such a bad expierince and I wouldn’t ever wish it on anyone. sad the sooner the better.. in my case 5 days just wasn’t enough. I’m just glad I finally have a diagnosis as to why I’ve been having odd symptoms for two months. 

    Good luck dear ❤️

      Thank you yes she's on antibiotics I've just been watching the bite area to see any changes not.swollen anymore but still has the brusing. She already has a weak immune system so I am just really nervous and scared. Thank you for your input.
