Great Info On How To Remove A Tick!
A friend sent me this and said it really worked! I don't want to get a tick to try it out though.. hehe
To Remove the entire TICK safely..........
Tick Removal Please forward to anyone with children .... or hunters, etc!! thanks!
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 let it stay on the repulsive insect for a few seconds (15-20), after which the tick will come out on it's 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 pass on; everyone needs this helpful hint.

By purchasing pet store or other puppy mill puppies, you support the abuse of innocent animals!

The CDC does not recommend using soap, petroleum jelly, etc to try to "smother" a tick.
