Oh no! You have a tick on you and it's bitten you. What do you do? Get if off of you as quickly and safely as you can.
Below is the recommended way to remove a tick.
Use fine tipped tweezers to grasp the tick close to the skin's surface. Get as close as possible to the skin.
Pull in a steady upward motion. You want constant force, not jerking or twisting.
If the mouth pieces of the tick remain, try removing them with the tweezers. If you can to get them, leave them alone and let the skin heal.
Wash the area and your hands with soap and water or an iodine scrub.
To dispose of the tick submerge it in alcohol, placing in in a sealed bag then put into the trash, wrap tape tightly around it or flush down the toilet. Never crush the tick in your fingers.
If you develop a rash, terrible headaches or muscle aches within a few weeks see your doctor. Be sure to tell him you were bitten by a tick.
