3 Home Remedies for Tick Bites

Bill

Tick bites: will produce a sore even if you pull it out quickly and you never know if it carried an infection such as Lymes or Rocky Mountain Fever. Some people are allergic to their bites and become irritable with bad memory and sore joints. So with that as an option, I've found that burning the bite location (after the Tick is removed) with the glowing tip of a heated nail or incense stick will caramelize any bacteria or tick proteins that may cause trouble. Yes it hurts but the infectious response is more limited and includes no antibiotics or fear of later consequences. Hold the tip of the nail about 1/8 inch away from the skin till the skin cooks and turns white w/ a black (burned) center. When it heals it looks no different than an untreated tick bite but you don't get sick. If you use a nail, find a heavy one that will hold the heat for a minute or longer, maybe 1/4 inch diameter. If you push it against your skin, it quickly transfers the tip heat away from the nail and fries the bite instead of broiling. Broiling is better because it goes deeper to cook any fluid the tick injected into the bite when it was squeezed. The white cooked area around the bite should go as deep as it is wide.

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.

Please, I ask you to try (Cenovis brand for me) multi vitamin tablets; and it would seem the swinger added to this is Fish Oil capsules; I have had many and severe reactions to the neuro toxins of the scrub typhus or chigger bites, and except for sleep disturbance, all other effects have apparently been halted in their tracks. I stress how severe were the 'reactions'and how incredibly improved were the physical symptons. No medical nor layman had heard of these that I encountered, and no help had been forthcoming, but now I hope this helps others. Please write if you have been assisted so I know if it works for you.
