How To Remove Ticks From Skin

Posted by on

Any tick embedded in your skin or in your pet's skin invites the risk of contracting some disease. Using a tweezer is the quickest and safest way to remove the tick. Simply find the head of the tick right under the skin surface line and pull the tick directly out without twisting or turning the body or squeezing the belly, which will cause pathogens to be released. Wash the area with soap and water or alcohol. Wearing eucalyptus oil is an effective deterrent to having ticks burrow under your skin. There are also many commercially produced powders and sprays available at your local pet supply store.  These preparations usually contain DEET or Permethrin as an effective way to repel both ticks and fleas from infesting your pet and causing illness.
