In brief: See below

Mostly with supportive care and itch, inflammation meds.
Then, watching for signs of tick-borne illness like rashes, joint pain, fevers, headaches, neck pain, facial palsy, chills, malaise, nausea, vomiting, etc. If any concerns, see your doctor.

In brief: Carefully

First the tick needs to be carefully removed so as to remove the entire tick.
Treatment with antibiotics should be considered.
