duckabell Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 So my son (5) had a mosquito bite on the back of his neck that was itchy last night. To keep him from itching it I put a Band-aid on and when I took it off it this morning it looked like a small's bulls-eye rash about 1-1.5 inches across. He hasn't shown any other signs of being sick and I haven't seen any ticks on him, especially on his neck. Should I take him into the doctor? I called and they didn't seem too worried but said that I could bring him in. The only thing is that we had a high-deductible plan and it would cost $120.00 to take him in. Also, I don't have the car today and could maybe switch with my husband but it would probably be a pain for him to switch. I could probably have the car tomorrow. Do you think I need to take him in today or tomorrow? I took pictures so that if it fades I have the proof. I also put a pen mark around it in case it grows. We live in Indiana and go on walks under a shaded walking path, so my kids could potentially be exposed to ticks. What would you do if you were me?
