Here is a picture of the bump that showed up a few weeks ago, shortly after I contracted LD.
It has slowly progressed from a small, mosquito size bump to this enormous thing.  The tick did not bite me here. 
Have you guys seen this before?  It's on my right arm.

I'm not sure what that is but it looks infected. You should go in and let your doctor look at it.

The bump has improved somewhat. It is less red & irritated. I've been doing the epsom salt soaks......I believe it's helping it. Plus I'm putting hot epsom compress on it too. I've got my fingers crossed.
