VIDEO: Two Methods for Removing Ticks

  [ 3 votes ]   [ 1 Comment ]
www.ProHealth.com • March 27, 2012


Old wives tales about tick removal (application of heat, gasoline, etc.) actually cause the tick to disgorge its infected stomach contents into the victim’s blood stream. The methods demonstrated here by Lyme disease expert Dr. Ernie Murakami are designed to avoid that. One method, for use by doctors, puts a ‘blister’ of xylocain and adrenalin under the tick, causing it to retract its mouth parts. The do-it-yourself straw & knot method (when you can’t get to a doctor) ties off the tick’s mouth parts from its stomach contents, and to be successful requires “subtle but constant upward pressure on the string.”

Tick removal
Posted by: IdentifyUS
Mar 28, 2012
Whereas these methods do succeed in removing the tick, they are unnecessarily complicated and tend to waste time. A set of fine forceps or the commercially available metal or plastic tick scoops are the best tools for removing ticks. Finding and promptly removing ticks (from a person or pet) can dramatically reduce risk of infection. Once the tick has been removed, have it identified. Only certain kinds of ticks can transmit the agents of Lyme disease, babesiosis and anaplasmosis. Other ticks may transmit other infections. The longer the tick is attached, the greater the risk of infection. Physical samples can be sent, or digital images uploaded, for a rapid, confidential, independent and expert evaluation.
