Eruptions; tick bite: Question is very disturbing, because it could indicate that you have a very serious problem which may have been caused by the tick. Very, very important for you to see a dermatologist as soon as possible. Some conditions, such as Lyme disease, can be chronic and debilitating. Go see your doctor immediately.
