Tick Removal Trick
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 some times 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 come 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."
