step instructions response
1 Apply insect repellent that contains 20 - 30% DEET.
2 Wear clothing that has been treated with permethrin.
3 Take a shower as soon as you can after coming indoors.
4 Look for ticks on your body. Ticks can hide under the armpits, behind the knees, in the hair, and in the groin.
5 Put your clothes in the dryer on high heat for 60 minutes to kill any remaining ticks.
6 How to remove a tick
1. If a tick is attached to you, use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick at the surface of your skin.
2. Pull the tick straight up and out. Don’t twist or jerk the tick—this can cause the mouth parts to break off and stay in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth parts with tweezers if you can. If not, leave them alone and let your skin heal.
3. Clean the bite and your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap and water.
4. You may get a small bump or redness that goes away in 1-2 days, like a mosquito bite. This is not a sign that you have Lyme disease.
