Clindamycin - for "cellulitus"
The most recent rash could be a reaction to clindamycin the other rash sounds like Lyme because of the bullseye, treatment with antibiotics should be 2-4 weeks on a different antibiotic.... See your doctor if you continue to have any odd symptoms as you can have symptoms for months after your tick bite, it might help to look up the symptoms of Lyme disease online plus symptoms can be different from person to person.... Hope you feel better soon!!

cephalexin and clindamyacin
I would've had mine taken out, and saved tens of thousands, and a lot of pain. Actually wanted them removed and done with, but dentist tend not to want to do that. They would rather milk each tooth for every cent they can get out of it.
