Safe and easy removal of ticks – with Dr. G. Schick’s Tick Tweezers
Dr. Schick's Tick Tweezers, available in chemists and guaranteed simple and easy to use, are ideal for removing ticks.
Dr. Schick's Tick Tweezers and the patented Ultra Tick Tweezers are used by doctors in general practice with great success and recommended to the layman for removing ticks.
The removal of firmly attached ticks is almost always a problem for the layman. You should never use oil or other substances for removing ticks, because this increases the risk of infection.
The mouthparts (erroneously also called "tick head") frequently tear off and remain sticking in the skin. This can be prevented by twisting the tick out of the skin.
The rotating movement causes gentler pulling. Moreover, rotating aids stabilisation between the mouthparts and the tick’s body, thus in almost all cases preventing the "tick head" being torn off.
Firmly attached ticks can be grasped by Dr. Schick's Tick Tweezers and twisted out with 2-3 twists:
- Press the release buttons
- Place the tweezer on the tick
- Slowly twist out the tick
The site of the bite should be disinfected once the tick has been removed. A tick should be removed as soon as possible, as this may in some circumstances reduce the risk of infection.
After a tick bite the aid of a doctor should definitely be sought:
a) if there is local reddening at the site of the bite.
b) if symptoms occur, such as, e.g. feeling unwell, headache, fever (similar to a flu infection).
