Be Ready to Grasp it:
Now, with the tweezers you are all set to grasp the tick. Just use it and ensure that you are gripping the tick’s head. Get the fine tip of the tweezers as close to the mouth of the tick. Never grasp the tick’s body as it leads to increase of transmitting diseases. Just pull it out. Voila!
Are you worried that you left a bit of ticks behind? Don’t fret. Even if you have left a dead tick it can’t any transmit disease.
Even if you were wearing gloves also wash your hands with soap and water. It’s a must that you also sterilize your tweezers with alcohol or iodine.
