Erythema Migrans

more about Erythema Migrans


  • This is the rash that is associated with early Lyme disease.  It usually occurs 3 to 32 days after a tick bite.  The rash will go away by itself, but since it is a sign of Lyme disease, it is an indication for antibiotic treatment.  Lyme disease can be very severe, leading to arthritis and other disabilities.

  • There is a gradual expansion of redness around the site of the tick bite.  The advancing border is raised, warm, and red or bluish-red and ringlike in appearance.  The ring appears to grow larger and can get quite large (up to 24 inches).  The rash burns in about 50% of those afflicted.  Some people will develop more than one ringlike rash.
  • The tick bite location may clear or form a blister or ulcer.

  • Antibiotics to treat Lyme disease
