DO A THOROUGH BODY CHECK FOR TICKS AFTER BEING OUTDOORS.
HOW TO REMOVE A TICK:
* Using tweezers, grasp tick near the mouth parts, as close to skin as possible.
* Pull tick in a steady, upward motion away from skin
* DO NOT use kerosene, matches, or petroleum jelly to remove tick.
* Disinfect site with soap and water, rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.
* Record date and location of tick bite. If rash or flu-like symptoms appear contact your health care provider immediately.
DISEASE RISK IS REDUCED IF TICK IS REMOVED WITHIN 36 HOURS.
