Tick Removal

Ugg…  Ticks! I dislike ticks greatly!  I dislike the stuff I have to put on my dog to prevent ticks!  I dislike removing ticks!  Ewe…. Yuck… They are gross insects!  I recently received an email from a friend.  I haven’t tried it yet, hopefully I won’t have to!  But, it’s better than using tweezers.

“A School Nurse has written the information below – Good Enough to share – and it really works.”

“I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. This is great because it works in those places where it’s sometimes difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc.”

Tick Removal

“Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball.  Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on it own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.”

Let me know if it work, unless I need to do it before that!

    Oh, I hate ticks! I had to remove one off my stomach (still have the scar, though) when I was a little girl. Thankfully, it was dead.

  3. I hope I never come in contact with a tick!
