The story is not consistent with Lyme disease. The tick has to be attached for at least 12 hours to infect.

Since she had some type of bites, it is possible what she thinks is mosquito bites may possibly be something else. It is important to visit a Dermatologist who may be able to provide you a more accurate diagnosis as there are multiple causes for annular erythemas such as Tinea Corporis, Erythema Annulare Centrifigum, Erythema Gyratum Repens, Erythema (Chronicum) Migrans, Granuloma Annulare, etc.
