Remove it gently
First of all...Don't panic! ticks are common, and most bites are harmless, but you do want to remove them because they can spread disease.
The easiest way to remove the tick is to take tweezers
, grab the tick at the head or mouth (closest to the skin), and apply gentle pressure upwards (away from skin). Do not use a match or petrolatum, since this will cause the tick to burrow deeper.
