In brief: Remove it

Cover it with liquid soap or lotion for a few minutes, then grip it and twist it to remove it completely.
You can go to the hospital and they can remove it.

In brief: See below

If you can't get it out, have someone else.
If they can't, see a physician. A deer tick needs at least 48 hours embedded to transmit any disease like lyme, this the sooner you get it out, the better.
