Rash: This may have been an insect bite with an allergic response or an area of contact dermatitis from something that touched your skin.

Your physician will advise you. ...Read more

Do I have lme disease? I got a tick bite on my upper thigh about half a year ago. It spread to other parts of my legs, itches a lot, but I don't have any of the other symptoms. I misspelld: the question is do I have Lyme diease?

Do I have lme disease? I got a tick bite on my upper thigh about half a year ago. It spread to other parts of my legs, itches a lot, but I don't have any of the other symptoms. I misspelld: the question is do I have Lyme diease?

The: The rash associated with lyme disease is called erythema migrans and it looks like a target or bulls-eye. It usually starts at the site of the tick bite 3-30 days after the bite (average 7 days) and then can spread to other parts of the body. The rash typically doesn't last more than a month and is rarely itchy. An itchy rash appearing 6 months after a tick bite would not be related to lyme disease. Other kinds of ticks can spread other organisms besides lyme such as "southern tick associated rash illness" or rocky mountain spotted fever, so if you think you have an abnormal rash related to a previous tick bite, contact your doctor.

Below I've attached a website with tons of good information on lyme disease. Good luck! ...Read more

Thigh irritation: I suspect skin irritation of your thighs may be related to such things as continual friction and/or sweating and? Yeast infection Perhaps wearing tight jeans plays a role, also. Avoid tight clothing, keep the thighs clean and dry once the rash clears. In the meantime try applying an antiyeast anti-inflammatory ointment like mycolog.
