I am sorry for the delay
can you upload a clear jpg phot of this bite area?
are you male or female?
thanks for the photos.
I can see that bit of swelling and discolorization around the bite area.
it doesn't look infected at this point.
you should use some 1% hydrocortisone cream on the area twice a day to decrease itchiness.
it can be close to impossible to identify the type of insect bite from the mark on the skin.
with more time it will get better, it has only be two weeks

yes, insect bites can take some time to heal.
most tick bites don't transfer lyme disease
lyme disease would cause body aches and pains and fever symptoms.
I would try the hydrocortisone cream and putting some cold compresses on the area
no, it doesn't look like a tick bite
more likely another insect bite.
insect bites can get better and flare up again.
there is no larvae left in you
you should use the hydrocortisone cream and cool packs.
it will get better.
