Is this a tick bite?

Posted , 2 users are following.

hello to all. my daughter had a bite that we were told it was a mosquito. it took one week to disappear and common bite creams didn't seemed to do anything. one month after she had the most severe illness since birth fever headache etc for about 4 days. now 8 months later she is experiencing something like sleep myoclonus and a slight tremor in hands during awake time. did mri and blood work all came back normal. next step is sth to check brain activity. do i need to show this bite to our neurologist? thank you! image

    I cannot believe no one has responded to you? Is this forum dead, or what?

    The bite looks very suspicious. I would get her tested for Lyme. If western blot test comes back negative I would do a iGenX test. Testing is the best way to confirm lyme but remember that it is not always accurate. Find a doctor who will listen to you and treat symptoms.

    Good luck x
