How to Remove a Tick Correctly

Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of

Every home needs a TICK KIT including:

1) Sharp tweezers

2) Rubbing alcohol wipes

3) Zip lock bag

4) Ledum 

5) This graphic!

Keep your Tick Kit with your First Aid Kit so you don't have to search for these items when you need them most!

What if the head breaks off?

It is recommended that you remove the head.  If you cannot do it, visit a walk in medical center to have it removed.  Ask for the head to include it with the body for testing (see testing labs below).  For more information: https://www.healthline.com/health/tick-removal#complications

"Global Lyme Alliance developed a peer-to-peer mentor support program; a free resource for people who are affected by Lyme disease and/or other tick-borne illness. Lyme patients, caregivers, and family members who have questions or just need to talk can connect with someone who has already “been there” and can provide support and hope. Peer mentors are people who have been diagnosed with Lyme disease and/or other tick-borne illness or are caring for someone who has and understands what you are going through."

Tick Testing

Saving a tick is one of the best weapons you have in the fight against Lyme Disease.  Private testing of the tick will inform you of any tick borne illnesses it carries.  Time is of the essence when you are diagnosed with Lyme.

In 2021 Partner in Lyme will begin limited tick testing reimbursement (up to $250.00) based on financial need.
