In brief: Not well

Lyme disease presents early with a classic rash which is an expanding circle of redness clearing in the center. There may be fever, chills, malaise, headache, stiff neck, and involvement of joints (arthritis), the heart, and the nervous system may all follow.
It is due to a spiral bacteria transmitted by deer ticks (borellia burgdorfii), and should be treated aggressively to prevent long illness.
