When it comes to dealing with ticks and their bites, there are many misconceptions floating around. To help you protect yourself and those you care about from these dangerous arachnids, we’d like to clarify some common tick-related myths.
Common Tick Myths Debunked
There are several myths about ticks that lead people to make bad decisions once they’ve been bitten. The reality is that when you discover a tick bite, all you need to do is calmly remove the tick with a pair of tweezers and destroy it immediately. Here are some common mistakes to avoid:
- Using a substance. Avoid the use of soap, petroleum jelly, or any other fluid. People often use these substances, believing that they will cause the tick to let go. Unfortunately, these actions are more likely to cause the tick to dig in and release more of its gut contents into the bite area, increasing your chances of catching Lyme disease.
- Burn the tick. This common myth can be very harmful. Ticks have a hard exoskeleton, so trying to burn them off will do nothing but burn your skin.
- Take antibiotics right away. The logic is easy to understand. Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics, so people often just cut straight to that step and begin taking these drugs as soon as they’ve been bitten. However, you should never take antibiotics that your doctor does not specifically prescribe.
