hi, does anyone - who had a bullseye type rash - still have a scar or mark of some kind - I have something that came-up long after the tick-bite it looked almost like a small bullseye - it was very sore - it has left a mark/scar which doesn't seem to be going - after many months - just curious if anyone else has this type of thing?

Yes I have a scar.  The center of my bull's eye blistered and it left a scar.

I know this is gross - but did you have any 'puss' type stuff come out of the center?? -

the very center of this small 'bullseye thing' - was black.

not really. Just wet.
The blister was deep and left a raised scar.

Ring worm is very different from the Lyme bull's eye rash, and it doesn't leave a black mark in the center.

There is a type of bulls eye that leaves a black mark like what you have described, Gorby, although I can't remember the details right now. Are you sure that the tick's mouth parts were cleanly removed? If not that would explain the puss as well.
