Remove tick by gently pulling straight out, grabbing as close to it's head as possible (tweezers helpful) being careful not to squeeze it's body.

Kill or safely contain tick.

Wash/disinfect hands and bite site.

If you have one - use a venom extractor to suck out hole tick made, and/or treat with heat...(organisms sensative to heat).

Try not to touch eyes or mouth or face and wash well any thing that gets blood etc. on it.

Heat treatment can vary...but generally must be hot and sustained enough to hurt moderately. without actually blistering skin.

Sources of heat may be fire (like a lit candle near the bite) or a heated metal object (like a spoon) or glowing ember, hair dryer, light bulb, etc.

Heat also takes away itchiness.
