Full Answer

At the place where it is embedded, the skin is visibly reddened and may or may not be slightly raised. Sterilized tweezers may be used to remove a tick from the body, taking care to remove the entire body and not leave any of its parts in the skin. Twisting should be avoided as the tick is pulled out to prevent its head from breaking and remaining in the skin.
