Beyond Band Aids with Mrs. Olsen
What to do if you find a tick on your child
1. Using fine-tipped tweezers, grab the tick close to the skin. Do not twist or jerk the tick, as this may cause the mouthparts to break off and remain in the skin.
2. With a steady motion, gently pull straight up until all parts of the tick are removed.
3. After removing the tick, clean your skin with soap and warm water.
4. Contact a healthcare provider if you develop symptoms of tick-borne disease.
Do not use petroleum jelly, hot matches, nail polish remover, or other products to remove a tick.
Rutgers Extension of Ocean County can identify the type of tick and the potential disease that tick may carry. Put the tick in a plastic bag or old medicine bottle with a piece of wet cloth or cotton ball and bring it to the facility. They will contact you the next day with the information. No appointment is necessary.
