in april, during a morel expedition i had a definate tick bite. i know a little about lyme disease as i have been to the doctor (with no positive results) and have read a great deal online about it. during the same trip, i got what i think was poison oak. some of those lesions are still healing on my arm. on my leg, i had a similar lesion but it developed a 1.5 inch red/bruised area with strange, slightly wrinkled looking skin. it is still healing. i suspected possible chigger bites as well as poison and tick bites. it could just be coincidence or a combo of all the above. i hate being this vague, but i had symptoms of all the afore mentioned ailments. i definately had two tick bites on my stomach, one i removed just as it started to bite. on my arm i am sure i had poison of some type. i suspected a chigger bite on my leg with the red welt and strange wrinkled skin. this was all at the same time basically. all of the areas seemed to be similar in discomfort...they itched terribly. today, my brother stopped by and showed me a 3-4 inch red circle on his arm/shoulder. it was not bullseye in appearance, like i have seen examples of lyme disease. he thinks it was a skeeter of some kind or some other flying bug as he swated his arm when he felt the bite but never saw anything. he said that last night it was a raised welt. today, it was not raised but was red and large. what in the world is going on? is anyone else having strange bites?
