Tick Bite

I was bitten by a tick over a year ago. I removed the tick and I have felt fine ever since, expect for itchiness at least once a week. It usually goes away, but we come back again. The area on my back where the tick was is slightly darker than my skin and there is a small bump in the middle. It doesn't look like the Lyme markings. Is there anything I can do about the itchiness? Should I go to the doctor?
