1. Tick bites
If you discover a tick bite on your skin, don’t pour oil on it. By doing so, you can make the insect choke, which means you won’t be able to test whether or not it was infected.
You should take out the tick with special tweezers.
- If you don’t have special tweezers, it’s better not to try to take it out by yourself but ask for medical help instead.
- It’s also necessary to visit a doctor if a fever or a rash appears after the bite.
- After taking the tick out, it’s necessary to take it to a special laboratory for testing. Not only will they study the insect, but they’ll also test your blood to exclude the chance of infection.
