What would cause a rash that looks like a bulls eye?

I had a leech attach to me while swimming in some not-so-nice waters last year. The rash that I had once I removed it looked like a bulls-eye.

A bulls eye rash with a central dot surrounded by a white and then red ring is typical of Lyme Disease, which is caused by tick bites.

A bull's eye rash is one sign of Lyme disease. Spider bites can also have a ringed rash with a 'bull's eye' center. Scabies can sometimes look like this but your doctor will have to be the one to determine what caused your rash. If you have had a tick bite see your doctor soon.

I had the same thing happen as you, with a leech bite. So far, I heard that leeches don't carry disease, but I still wonder.
