First aid techniques:

Take hold of the tick as close to the skin as possible with the help of a specially-designed tick removing tool

gradually turn and remove it

you can also use a pair of fine-tipped tweezers

Do not squeeze its body too hard to avoid the tick injecting any infective fluids into the skin

2 - Disinfect

Then disinfect the wound using alcohol or skin antiseptic

If you observe the breakout of a skin rash , spots, fever or flu-like symptoms: consult a doctor!

As certain ticks can cause a rare-but-serious disease known as Lyme disease which can be treated with antibiotics and vaccinations
