First Aid and Treatment Procedures for Tick Bites

If you have been bitten by a tick, it is important to remove the tick as soon as possible. Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible and pull upward with steady, even pressure. After removing the tick, clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap and water. It is also advisable to seek medical attention, especially if the tick has been attached for more than 24 hours or if you are unable to remove the tick completely. Your healthcare provider may prescribe antibiotics or other treatment based on the type of tick and any symptoms you are experiencing.
