  • Probably two unrelated issues; ringworm on shoulder or a tick bite??? If you were bitten by a tick, you need to see a doctor...you should see one anyway. Your other irritation could be a STD, along with a bladder infection so go and get both checked out. Slight possibility of a first sore from syphilis since you have the other issue, but sounds like ringworm to me.

  • Agree with the concern about tick bite...consider Lyme disease and its companions (babesiosis, human granulocytic erlichiosis, among others); don't know if the urine complaints are associated but STD (syphilis) is the great imitator. See a doctor who believes in Lyme disease.
