I am curious as to who on this forum actually had a EM rash. Did you feel the tick bite? If not how long before you noticed something? Did the bite area swell, get hot, itch, or hurt? Did you immediately get sick?
Here is my "spider" bite from a year ago.
I didnt feel anything bite me initially. But about noon of that day I thought I must have gotten bit by a mosquito because there was a reddened area and it did itch. Each hour it became more and more enlarged, redder, more painful and less itchy, hot to the touch. By 9 pm I felt like I had the flu, running a fever, chills, body aches and severe pain in the leg area. By the next day my leg was swollen and hot and hard to the touch and I could not hardly bear weight on it. I went to the doc and dx'd as spider bite. 10 day abx was given. I felt better after a couple of days. One week later no sign of anything except bruising on the leg where it had swollen....I am curious how others' rashes/bites reacted.
