Before you go hunting for the ‘tweezers’ it is better to get it removed by a medical professional or use a tick removal tool. Using tweezers their is a danger that the tick may be squeezed or you leave the head of the tick in place which could quickly cause an infection, hence using the right tool to remove it.
When using a tick removal tool it is best to insert it under the tick and then rotate the removal tool 360 degrees with the aim of removing the tick in its entirety and not leaving the jaws behind.
With the 360˚rotation, then the tick is lifted up and away ensuring nothing is left behind.
Once the tick has been removed then apply antiseptic lotion to the bite, the tick should be kept in a container along with the date of bite so if you become ill with Lyme disease symptoms within a few weeks it can be tested.
