For those of you on construction projects near wooded areas, hunters, hikers, dog owners, folks who might come in contact with Ticks; here is a method of removing a tick that might be helpful to you.  
Nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove Ticks where they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her simple instructions.  Read  this one as it could save you from some major problems.
Tick  Removal 
Spring  is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads.  Here is a good way to get  them off you, your Children, or your pets.  Give it a try. 

"I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove  a tick.  This is great, because it works in those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with 
tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc."   

"Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball.  Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball  and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.  This technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently, and it's  much less traumatic for the Patient and easier for me.." 
"Unless  someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way.  I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers.  She used this method and immediately called me back  to say,  "It worked!" 

Just thought we would share this article because of all the rain the ticks are out of control!  So, becareful out there!
