I have a lone star tick rash. I didn't know that only half of people who get bit by the lone star tick develop a rash. I guess I'm special.
I was bit four days ago at an outing. I found the tick a few hours after I got home and the rash was small at that time. In two days, the rash grew to twice its size. Thankfully, I had saved the tick just in case, so I went to the hospital with it. I didn't know what type it was, but they recognized that it's a lone star tick at the hospital and put me on antibiotics.
