Dr. Randy S. Baker answered:

How long will a lyme disease rash last?

Usually 3-5 weeks

Open-uri20120724-31679-1r9v8hy
Erythema migraines, the bullseye rash associated with Lyme, typically appears 7-10 days after a tick bite, though it can be from 1-33 days. It usually lasts 3-5 weeks, though could be shorter or longer. It tends to gradually expand over time. While often said to appear in 80-90% of those with Lyme, actually no more than 30% with Lyme recall a rash- see www.jemsekspecialty.com/lyme_detail.php?sid=6

What are the symptoms of new lyme disease if you don't have a rash?

Lyme disease

Rash
Lyme disease affects different areas of the body in varying degrees as it progresses. The site where the tick bites the body is where the bacteria enter through the skin. As the bacteria spread in the skin away from the initial tick bite, the infection causes an expanding reddish rash that is often associated with "flu-like" symptoms. Later, it can produce abnormalities in the joints, heart, nerve

Can lyme disease be in your body and only manifest a small rash when under stress?

Lyme Disease

Circular_rash_at_site_of_tick_bite
A small, red bump may appear at the site of the tick bite.This small bump is normal after a tick bite and doesn't indicate Lyme disease.However, over the next few days, the redness may expand forming a rash in a bull's-eye pattern, with a red outer ring surrounding a clear area.The rash, called erythema migrans, is one of the hallmarks of Lyme disease.

Unlikely but...
