It started 2 weeks ago when my mom looked after my dog for a weekend holiday. She got a patch on her skin. It was hyper-sensitive and looked like abrasion. When me and my husband came back from holiday and spent few days with our dog, we had the same sympthoms.

In the second stage, a red o-shaped ring around the patch has appeared and it looked like a spider's bite (suggested by the dhermatologist). In the third stage, the blister became as big as the ring. Finally, after the blister popped, the patch started being yellow and it has some red dots on its surface. It is a little bit deeper than the red o-shaped ring. It is hard to healt the wound.

The patch size: 2cmx2cm. it is no itching.

WHAT IT IS?

I went to the pharamcy yesterday, the pharmacist told me that i SHOULDN'T treat it as a ringworm because it does not like like a fungi-caused disease and it may disrupt healing process

99.9% it is not tick bite - I live in a big city, no forrest and high grass yet. It happend to me, my husband and my mom (yesterday, after one week the second bubble appeared on her leg), we haven't seen any ticks on our bodies and the temperature in Poland was low (minus) that time. My case looks the worst, whle my husband has only red little patch.

All of us feel well, we don't have other symptomps. All of us played and slept (!) with my dog.

The Dermatologist gave me neomicina-based spray (she thought it was spider-bite) and triderm lst week.

Yesterday I decided to stop treat the wound with these medicines in order to do further research (I shouldn't treat the wound with any medicines for one week)
