The bullseye rash only appears sometimes. The absence of it doesn't mean the child wasn't bitten or didn't get the pathogen that causes Lyme disease.

If I knew my child was bitten by a deer tick I would do the antibiotics. Lyme disease is nothing to mess around with. If you're not sure if she was bitten and you're in a Lyme area, I would suggest the abx.

I'm normally very conservative with abx, but would definitely do it for Lyme concerns.
