Tick Head Still in Skin?

Answer

If you've removed a tick from your skin, but the head still remains in side, doctors say not to worry. The illnesses and salavia from ticks are contained inside the tick body, making the head virtually harmless. If the tick head bothers you it can be removed as if it were a splinter, but if you've got a squirmy child that has a tick head in their skin there is no need to force them to sit through you taking it out. The body will naturally rid itself of the tick head over time. If a rash occurs or any signs of infection you must see a doctor for further information.
