I have a bite that looks a little like a bulls eye. It is not large, on my upper arm near the armpit.

I first saw it on Thursday. It was a little itchy. Didn’t feel like a mosquito bite, I thought it was small little bites. But today it changed into a bulls eye shape. It’s not itchy anymoreZ

I was in India last month. I arrived in Thailand on Monday. I discovered the bite on Thursday and it became a bulls eye today.

I went to the hospital but they said come back if it gets worse. I have no symprtoms other than slight nerve pain here and there but it might be linked to something else such as food. (Had it before).

I would like to attach a photo if possible.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be spider bite because tick bite is not common in India.Anyhow you should wait and look for change in its size and nature.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
