You need to go immediately to the doctor and have them run blood test. But even if the blood test is negative for Lyme. Since the bullseye is there you need to receive antibiotics.
My 2 kids and I were bitten, we did not get the bullseye. Even if we have multiple symptoms, but because blood work is negative doctors will not give antibiotic.

Please go to the doctor immediately and get antibiotics.

You have to run to a doctor fast, for we don't know what effects that bite of an insect may give you.  For sure you will be given anti biotic medicine to take plus a medicated cream or ointment.  But before you go , clean it with running water and anti bacterial soap.   pest control companies
