So I pulled this tick off of me wednesday evening. It hadn't been on any longer than 12-24 hours, but I'm guessing it bit me several times cause I have bite on my stomach, waist line, and back. The one around my waist line has been itchy and I've scratched it. Yesterday I noticed this bruising around it. I had another tick bite on my back about a week ago do the same thing. Any ideas?

    Hi I can't understand why you are asking online if you definitely know you have been bitten because your showing the results of the bites, you should be going to your GP or a walk-in centre to get a prescription for steroid meds, if you don't you could possibly end up with an infection, off you go smile

      Why would I go every time I got bit by a tick? That's a little excessive. I just noticed I had some weird bruising with these last two for some reason

      Hi Carol exactly, I just think you must be concerned if you have gone to the effort of posting and putting pics on, so better safe than sorry, especially if your not UK

    If I were you, I'd go to the doctor or emergency! If you were bit more than once, you might need shots or anti-biotics!  Lyme disease might be possible!
