Hi all,

Sorry for my many posts!

When I got my initial tick bite, I never found the tick but did pick off a little brown scab which maybe in hindsight was a tiny tick body--I don't know.

Anyway, do any OTHER bug bites cause a tick-bite-type rash? I had a bite which developed a flat, medium-pink oval rash about 2" at it's widest point. The rash lasted a little under two weeks. There was only one apparent puncture hole in my skin, larger than a mosquito bite.

I can ONLY find pictures online of Lyme rashes and spider bites and stuff. Has anyone had a rash like this that was not from a tick? Thanks!

What you pulled off could've been a tick. Deer ticks, for example, can be extremely small and sometimes look just like a freckle.

Any bug bite can cause a rash if it transmits an infection or if the bite itself becomes infected.
