No different

There is no way to tell infected vs noninfected deer tick bites by merely looking at them. However, if you see the typical bulls-eye rash, think Lyme disease. All deer tick bites should assume to carry the Lyme organism and should be treated with doxycycline without waiting for blood test results or clinical Lyme symptoms.

I have an infected tick bite. Will cephalexin help?

Tick bite

Tick_bite
The treatment of a given tick exposure will depend on the length of attachment, the type of tick, the diseases that are seen in the community, and the symptoms developed by the person. Specific medical treatment depends on the pathogen(s) transmitted in the tick bite. For example, in adults, if one suspects Lyme disease, Doxycycline or Amoxicillin or Cefuroxime axetil, or Emycin is used.

They vary in appearance, but often, the bite will often go unnoticed. If the tick was attached for less than 24-48 hours, the likelihood that you have contracted a disease is almost zero (I never say never). But watch for signs like a rash at the tick bite site, headaches, fevers, muscle aches, chills, fatigue, malaise, nausea and vomiting. If these occur, see you doctor.

What does a tick bite look like?

Insect bite

Tick_bite
Ticks are insects and leave bite marks. You may see head parts in the skin if not the whole body lodged in the skin. Initially, a tick bite could cause a small area of redness and swelling and bruising. The developing rash could be rounded and can extend outward in days to weeks and could indicate Lyme disease.

What does a tick bite look like on a human?

Tick bite

Tick_bite
If the tick is actually biting when you see it, it will be a small brown or black bug attached by his legs and mouthparts to your body. Black text are about 4 mm across or bigger and deer ticks or brown ticks about 3 mm across. After biting you may have a small growing red spot which itches somewhat for over subsequent days; you could actually develop a larger round spot. See a doctor immediately

What does the spot after a tick bite look like?

Often a red spot

Tick_bite
The primary infection of Lyme disease is a rapidly expanding ring. This should be promptly treated. A temporary red spot is a reaction to the tick rather than lyme.

What does a tick bite look like and what does it look like if its Lyme disease and what are the symptoms got bit a month ago and spot still there?

Appearance varies

Open-uri20130601-13676-1oeyqph
A tick bite can be invisible after the tick detaches, or leave a red spot. When Lyme is in the tick, often (but not always) a red rash spreads out in a circle (can be other shapes too) and is often clearing from the center outward. Called a "Bull's Eye" rash because of its appearance.

How big is a tick bite that can cause Lyme disease? I have a bite, but am not sure if it’s from a tick. What do tick bites look like?

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.
