how long after a tick bite would it take for her to develop a rash?

3-28 days: A tick bite can transmit the organism that causes lyme, which can lead to a characteristic circular rash around the tick bite, beginning a few days to a few weeks after the exposure. Early treatment of Lyme disease with antibiotics is important to prevent complications of late Lyme disease.
