A MESSAGE FROM OUR NURSES
Tick season is upon us in New Jersey. May is the first month we begin to experience ticks in our surroundings and with that some potential tick-borne illnesses.
Here are some simple tips to avoid ticks:
Avoid wooded areas, bushes, and shrubs
Keep lawns mowed very low
Keep skin covered
Wear light-colored clothing
Wear a hat
Check pets frequently for ticks
Use a good tick repellent spray for hiking in wooded areas
Please check yourself, your child and your pet frequently for ticks in the scalp, underarm, behind the ears and in the groin area. These are places ticks like to hide out. If you find a tick, use a tweezer and remove the entire tick. Call your MD for further instructions. If you notice a red rash around the tick bite, please see your MD immediately. Lyme disease is quite common in the deer tick in New Jersey and can cause a multitude of issues if not treated early. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at Indian Fields or Ms. Dowgin at Dayton.
