I was in Bristol working in the yard last Friday I remember I felt a really sharp pinch which I didnt know what that was. The next day I notice a spot that looks almost like a birthmark... now these look black with a pink ring... It had made me itch twice today. I felt very light pain just a few time but not a big deal. So I ask what is this, a spider bite, a tick? Should I worry?

A bullseye is most common for a tick just take a look a google images and compare your bite to others. If it's a tick bite yes you should worry a bit. They gave me 2 weeks of doxycycline and bullseye went a way. My old neighbor her Lyme disease went stage 2 or 3 and her life is bad she has almost no energy and can barely work.

Better yet if you got ins. go to the doctor!

Well it could be a tick, brown recluse which eats your flesh away, or black widow. Any of which could severely impact your quality of life so go to the doctor!

If you felt the bite it is not a brown recluse.

I got a spider bite about 4 years ago...yes, right here in CT. My thigh got so red and swelled up so much that I went to Urgent Care. Cleared up with antibiotics...so yes, don't ignore it.
