Tick: Generally the rash from lyme (erythema migrans) does not itch and is not raised. What could cause a bump and itch is if part of the tick was left in and is causing an inflammatory reaction or your body is mounting a local allergic reaction to the body part. I would check to make sure some to the tick was not left behind. Should also have blood work for lyme anyway.
