its very mixed ground there, but is floods a bit...woods, boggy thickets etc.....prob ticks but have heard other bitty things can transmit the bacteria.

Nice that you made the doctor happy with your visit. Do the pills sort it out then and nuke it?

my previous picture looked like that, but was fading when i took it, all the smaller ones now have a little hard dot in the middle 10 days after i went to that area.....very relieved this doc took itserious , but slightly concerned about the debate on how long treatment should last........NHS say 2 weeks strong or 4 weeks weeker antibiotics........lots on the net says should be 4-6 weeks to cover life cycle of the bacteria.......fingers crossed no real complications but it seems different for each person.

Amputation is your only option. Chop it off and book flights to Rio in 2016.

They claim they don't live as far north as Scotland. My GF has caught about 5 in her flat. Confirmed by the Natural History Museum and Edinburgh Zoo based on photos she sent.

My initial though is that it isn't ticks as any time I've had a tick bites it has been single ones, or two at most. The OP seems to have a lot of bites. And I've always found the tick, or at least whats left of it.
