Instructions for Tick Removal

If a tick is still attached to your skin, follow these steps to safely remove it:

  • Use fine tweezers to grasp the tick as close to your skin as possible.
  • Apply firm, steady pressure to gently pull the tick away (avoid squeezing or twisting).
  • Place the tick in a sealed container or Ziploc bag.
  • Cleanse the tick bite area, your hands, and the tweezers with rubbing alcohol or soap and water.

While you can remove a tick yourself, it's advisable to consult a trained clinician, like the ones on our team here at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Even if you successfully remove the tick, it's important to seek evaluation and any necessary follow-up treatments promptly. Please bring the tick with you to our office in a secure container.
