How to Correctly remove a tick—

  • Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick and close to hte skin's surface as possible
  • Pull upward with steady and even pressure
  • Don't twist or jerk the tick from the skin (this can cause the mouth to break off inside the skin)
  • Remove any remaining parts from skin with tweezers
  • After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area with rubbing alcohol or soap & water.
