Southern tick–associated rash illness



An expanding red rash, similar in appearance to erythema migrans, the rash found in Lyme disease. It results from the bite of the tick Amblyomma americanum, found in the southeastern U.S. Ticks of this species may harbor the spirochete Borrelia lonestari, which produces the rash.
