Do rashes from Lyme disease itch?

I have a bad itchy rash and was wondering if I have lyme disease.

The itchyness of a rash is not the characteristic that gives it away that it is lyme disease. The characterisitic feature is called erythema migrans, or the fact that it is a taretoid looking lesion. Regardless, if you are worried about lyme you should see you doctor as it is treatable.

Typically, Lyme disease presents as a localized bulls-eye area of redness where the tic bite occured or a large splotchy redness on various areas. Typically neither are itchy.

Lyme disease typically has a bulls eye rash. But this is not fail proof. The bulls rash can itch for an entire lifetime even after treatment.

Rashes caused by Lyme Disease do not itch. The rash will either be tender or very warm to the touch.
