You will need tweezers to remove a tick, be sure to sterilize them either by using rubbing alcohol or running them through a flame several times. If using the flame method make sure they are cool before using them for tick removal. If you have no access to tweezers, it is best to use a paper towel, napkin or tissue, do not grab the tick with your bare hands!
Next, grasping the tick as close to the head as you can get, start pulling back away from your skin, but be gentle. The object here is to get the tick to let go, on it’s own. Do not squeeze the tick, just use enough pressure to hold onto it. Keep a steady pressure on the tick, and if need be jiggle it slightly. Do not rotate the tick or you will separate the head from the body. You may have to keep the pressure up for 30 seconds to a minute or two, in order to convince the tick it no longer wishes to be attached to your skin.
If after several minutes the tick still will not let go, try dripping a drop of rubbing alcohol on the tick. Repeat this step once a minute for up to 10 minutes. But be careful, using too much alcohol can sometimes cause the tick to regurgitate. They will generally always let go, if this step is needed.
Now once the tick has been removed, make sure that you have the head. If not further digging may be necessary, and I would recommend seeing a doctor at this point. Also do not dispose of the tick, it is a good idea to put your tick in a ziplock baggie or a small glass jar, so that it can be checked for Lyme Disease. Also treat the removal area with a disinfectant, and keep it clean and dry.
watch out for lime diease!!
