Redneck Tick Removal
Down South people find a different way to get “Tick”ed off
Or is this just another internet spoof?


[A pediatrician told a school nurse 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…]


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 it's own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.

This technique has worked every time I've used it (and in Tennessee, 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!”
