Ticks are little spider like insects that burrow of their jaws into your skin and feed off your blood. Although most of them are not dangerous, they can still cause some problems.
Here is the proper way to remove a tick from the skin.
First, you're going to need some fine tip tweezers. If you don't have any, you can use tissues. Just don't use bare hands. Gently pinch the tick in the front of its body closest to the skin. Do not pinch its belly.
Next, you want to pull straight back on the tick until you feel a little resistance. Hold it there until the tick let's go on its own. Don't pull too hard because you might rip off its body, leaving the head still inside this skin.
Do not twist, squeeze, or burn the tick, for this may cause infected fluid from the tick to leak back in the skin
Once the tick is removed, place it in a jar full of rubbing alcohol. You might have to identify its later just in case an infection occurs.
Look for these signs of infection.
If you have a rash, fever, or flu-like symptoms, this could mean you have an illness related to a tick bite. If you have any of these symptoms, or symptoms of a skin infection, call your doctor.
If you cannot remove a tick on your own, go to a doctor.
These are the proper steps you need to take when removing a tick from either yourself or your pet. I hope this helps you.
