Spreading Rash

Left untreated, the rash may spread to other areas of the body. It doesn't spread fast. Instead, it's a gradual progression over several days. The initial EM rash can reach up to 12-inches across or more.

The rash doesn't have to begin where the bite occurred. It can appear anywhere on the body. Although the most common rash type is the EM, it doesn't always develop. See a doctor for any rash following a tick bite that doesn't clear up right away.
