a bullseye rash would be a good indication, it distinctly has a centre of redness with a ring around the outside. It doesn’t always present this way. It is hard to tell the difference between ticks unless they are side by side really. If you are really concerned it can be treated in the early stages with antibiotics.

@sleepingbeauty88: I honestly think it.s just irritated/infected. Lyme disease isn’t as common as the horror stories would have you believe. I’ve probably had at least 50 tick bites in my life… no lyme disease yet! *fingers crossed*

I had a tick a few years ago on my tummy.  Because it HAD bitten me, I had a small pinkish dot on my tummy right where I pulled it off.  I kept a very close eye on it because I am paranoid, but the spot went away after a day or two.  I never developed the bullseye rash or any symptoms, so I assume I am fine.  Likely the spot is just irritated because an insect had it’s chompers on your skin.  If it gets worse or is still there after a few days, I would see a doc.  MAN, I HATE TICKS!!!  *shudder*
