Tick Removal

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.

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 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.

“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!”

    I’ll keep this in mind. I have dogs, though I treat them for stuff like that, as I’m sure you do too, but with all the trees around my house it is so easy for one of them bugger to get on one of us if we are not careful….Good advice, Ed.

    When I came to your blog this morning I thought. “How come I don’t get email notifications of Ed’s new posts…I’m subscribed by email.” I eve checked in my subscription list and there you are and right next to it is says “Immediately.” But do I get them?…No. So I unsubscribed, then re-subscribed just a few moments ago…Hopefully that will work.

    Thank you for the comments you left me this morning, Ed…always nice to hear from you.

    Once again, this post offers some good advice!…thanks for sharing!

    Hugs, xx
