Since the Australian Government still refuses to collect data around tick-borne illness, it’s up to us. For example, most images of tick bite rashes available across the internet are from tick bites in other countries, so we simply don’t know if there are any recognisable patterns in bite rashes and their locations across the country.

Have you been bitten by a tick in Australia, and experienced a rash? Please help us to build our gallery of Australian tick bite rash images by submitting images (and tick bite location) via Facebook/Messenger.
