If you get bitten, it is essential to remove the tick quickly. Ticks can carry very dangerous diseases; ticks only need a couple of hours to infect their host.
The tick must be removed correctly:
do not squeeze the tick, do not burn it,do not try to kill the tick or put it to sleep with chemical products before removing it.
You should never pull the tick.
Instead, remove it with a twisting motion, without compressing it.
While removing a tick, it is essential not to compress it, reducing the risk of saliva back-flow. A tick's saliva contains irritating substances and sometimes micro-organisms that can lead to infections and/or allergies.
Tweezers and other instruments exert a pressure on the tick.
The tick's rostrum (the part that is embedded in the skin and improperly referred to as “the tick's head") is covered with backward pointing spikes that allow the tick to “anchor" in the skin.
By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the rostrum in the skin. The tick may break leaving body parts resting in the skin and causing a painful inflammation, or an infection.
By twisting the tick, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum.
