There are a few ways to stop the ticks from getting to you to bite you or give you diseases. But you still have the chances to be bitten by a tick. If you don’t want professional medical aid, you can do some tricks at home by yourself.

#1 Just follow these steps:

Note: do not Touch tick barehanded!

You just need good quality tweezers, paper towel and a pair of gloves. With the tweezers, get the tick next to its mouth where it is actually sucking your skin. Don’t pinch the tick on its body or stomach, that way it will only release more saliva and blood in your organism. Take the tick out gently, place in a ziplock bag and freeze it.

When the tick is removed now, clean the area with gentle soap and mild warm water. In case a rash appears, or headache, flu or joint pain several weeks after the tick, see a doctor right away.

#2 Symptoms of a Tick bite

Usually there are no obvious symptoms, but some people can manifest allergic reactions, such as:

(i) Swelling on the bite place

(ii) Pain

(iii) Blisters

(iv) Burning skin
