Which causes you to have a bulls eye rash, ringworm or lime disease?

I have a bulls eye type rah on my arm.


Answer by  John (9008)

This sort of rash is most commonly caused by ringworm, although there are some other, much less likely, possibilities. Only a doctor can tell for certain. Even if it is just ringworm, you need to get a prescription to treat it, anyway, so a visit to your doctor is needed.

A bullseye type rash is a sign of tick bite, which carry many diseases. If you experience a rash that resembles a bullseye, seek medical attention immediately.

bulls eye rash appears whith infection due to the bacteria that cause lime disease. Ringworn is a fungal (not bacterial)infection on skin. So, in both diseases are bulls eye rash but one infection is bacterial and the other fungal. Treatment will be different.

Both actually can but you need to see a doctor. Especially if you are feeling fatigue and the ring is getting larger. Ringworm is very contagious!!
