First off, there are tick kits to remove them, but it is just as easy to do it yourself. Get a small glass jar with rubbing alcohol in it. You then want to use a pair of tweezers and grasp the tick as close to your skin as possible. You want to twist it while at the same time pulling up and out slowly and steadily. It will hurt. Keep twisting and pulling until it pops out. Do not pull out hard and do not try to pull it out with out twisting it (just keep rotating it in one direction) Sometimes the head will pop off and stay in your skin, but it is dead, and your body will push it out or destroy it. Once you pull it out, it will still be alive. Put it in the glass with alcohol to kill it and then flush it. You can also light it on fire **once it is out of your body** I do this because I like to know it is very very dead. Hope that helps! :)
