Directions and important information:
- Remove ticks as soon as possible
- Do not squeeze, twist or burn a tick
- Do not use petroleum jelly, oil or any other chemical products to remove ticks
- Stressing a tick greatly increases the risk of it injecting harmful agents into the bloodstream of its host
For smaller ticks or ticks that are not yet fully engorged, use the smaller notch in the Tick Remover Card. Do not apply excessive force as this may stress the tick, causing the head to remain in the skin. Disinfect the bite area and the Tick Remover Card after removal using hygienic cleansing wipes.
What is tick-borne disease?
A small red itchy patch is a normal body-reaction to a tick bite but symptoms can be much more severe. Serious tick-borne diseases include Lyme disease (Lyme borreliosis) which is increasingly common throughout Europe and America.
What are the symptoms of tick-borne disease?
Symptom patterns vary from person to person. Early indications in the days after the bite can include flu-like symptoms, extreme tiredness, headache, muscle pain, tender glands and sensitivity to temperature, sound and light. In some cases you may see a roughly circular red rash, without itching or pain, that slowly spreads outwards. It may be clear in the middle and is often called a bull’s eye rash. Seek medical advice promptly if you are concerned or experience any of the above symptoms after a bite.
