What is the significance of a bullseye bug bite?


Answer by  JCC (48)

The bite of a deer tick carrying Lyme disease will often cause a bulls-eye discoloration of the skin. Therefore, it is important that you make an appointment with your doctor within the first 48 hours after being bitten. Your doctor can test for the Lyme virus and begin appropriate treatment.
