I was icing my leg and then I took the pack off and felt burning and this round raised blister like thing appeared. Then it quickly turned all uniform red and flattened then disappeard within 24 hrs???? I have a pic  but I don't think they have any way for me to attach it.

Hi kb123, welcome to the board!

What does your rash look like?  Although only about 50% of people who have Lyme ever get a rash, a bulls-eye rash is a definite sign of Lyme.  There are other types of Lyme rashes also.  Here are a few sites where you can see some Lyme rashes: 

Does your rash resemble any of these?  It is good you got a photo of it.  If it comes back, take more photos.  Place something near it, like a coin or ruler, to give it size definition.

Do you know if you were bitten by a tick?  If you want, you can email the photo to me at ko_@bellsouth.net

Hello, thank your for welcoming me on the forum. 

Essentionally I was icing my leg and when I was done I felt this burning behind my knee where I'd been icing. I looked to find the blister looking ring. Within a half hour the rased blister part went down and the entire rash turned red. There was no bulls eye or rings or cut in the center and it was about 1.5 inches and did not grow. about 24 hours later it was gone.

 

Thanks so much for the responses, just trying to put the pieces together.. :)

i would say any type of circle type rash on or below the waist could be.. i'm not a doc, but hey, better safe than sorry, get it looked at, and start taking doxy asap. just to be safe.. Don't blow it off.. My mom and aunt get weird rashes that move around all the time, they blow them off..
