Almost immediately: It starts very soon after the tick bite and expands over the next few days.
How long willit take for the "bulls eye" to come up to show you have Lyme disease from a deer tick?
3-30 days or never: A bulls-eye rash (erythema migrans) after a tick bite is considered a sure sign that one has been infected with lyme & appears 3-30 days after the bite (usually 3-7 days). However, half or more of those proven to have lyme do not recall this rash. One should therefore not wait to see if they develop this rash to seek preventive treatment. The sooner treatment is started after exposure the better!

Can blood test be false negative for Lyme disease? Bulls eye bite on 8/16/13 but symptoms much worse since anesthesia from g.B. Removal on 10/11/13
YES!!!: A bulls-eye rash is pathognomonic of lyme, meaning it alone generally proves you got it. Blood tests are notoriously unreliable for lyme-only half with lyme have a positive eia & the confirmatory western blot has many false negatives, esp. If not done by igenex, the only lab with a reliable test! Ultimately lyme disease is a clinical diagnosis. Treatment requires a comprehensive approach. See comment.See 1 more doctor answer

One of my wife's mosquito bites now resembles a target or bulls-eye. Got it last night and she doesn't remember a tick but worried about Lyme disease?
Lyme: 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.See 1 more doctor answer

Further evaluation: I would suggest a work up to include further evaluation of your asthma which is being treated with Advair. The evaluation will include a pulse oximetry test with and without exercise. These symptoms may be related to uncontrolled asthma. In addition, a TB test and CF screening test can be performed. A complete physical exam and history will determine other causes.See 2 more doctor answers
