My tick or bug bit is getting puffier and larger. Is this possible Lyme disease?

Anything Possible. Does not sound like erythema chronicum migrans, the classic lyme disease eruption, but that is often followed by a non-descript rash. If this is tender, painful, warm to touch and you have any associated symptoms, please go see your doctor.

Also, lyme usually causes flu-like symptoms like muscle aches, fever and headache within days of the bite. Be aware that ticks may carry other infections besides lyme, such as babesia, bartonella, ehrlichiosis and rocky mountain spotted fever. Read more...
