Is this a Tick bite?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello Everyone

I recently discovered what I think is some kind of insect bite behind my knee that I do not recognize. I am wondering if it could be caused by a tick?

I know it doesn’t have the bullseye rash. But it is red, had a white spot in the center and has a hard bump.

I know all bites can be different from person to person and in different areas of the body but just wondering if anyone can help identify whether this is a Tick bite or not.

I have attached several images of the area. The first 2 images are from yesterday, the day I discovered the mark and the next 2 images are from today.
