In brief: Tick bite

A tick bite can look like a bull's eye.
It's important to see your doctor if you see a tick or suspect a tick bite because they can carry lyme disease which can have long-term debilitating consequences. Treatment with Doxycycline can help prevent lyme disease. Other bugs that leave a tiny circle are spider, bed bugs, fleas, fire ants, chiggers.
