Tick Removal

A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where

they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her

simple instructions. Read this one as it could save you from

some major problems.

Tick Removal:

Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads.

Here is a good way to get them off you, your children,
or your pets. Give it a try.Please forward to anyone with children, hunters or dogs;

or anyone who even steps outside in summer!

A School Nurse has written the info 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.”“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 com e out on its own and be
stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
This technique has worked every time I’ve used it
(and that was frequently), and it’s much less traumatic
for the patient and easier for me..”“Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can’t see that this

would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor’s
wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her
back and she couldn’t reach it with tweezers. She used
this method and immediately called me back to say,
“It worked!”Please share. Everyone needs this helpful hint

  2. URGENT!! NEVER make a tick back out on it’s own! I will regurgitate everything including any disease it was carrying. http://www.snopes.com/oldwives/tick.asp

  3. Thank you, my pit bull had two on his outer ear and I applied the cotton with soap and in less than two second they were off.

    • Great it’s off but now it has regurgitated everything back into your dog. So if the tick had any disease your dog is now infected with that disease. This method is as useful as leaving the tick on the dog.
