A tick bit me three months ago. I was treated with doxycycline and hydrocortisone cream. The bump is still there and itches. Any advice?

In brief: Allergic reaction

An allergic reaction is possible given the itchiness of the area.
Applying a topical antihistamine cream may be helpful. During a virtual consult a photo may be uploaded and a Lyme titer ordered.
