    Default Easy Tick Removal- You may have seen this before

    I got this email (again) today, and thought I would check on this to see if it was indeed the best way to remove ticks. Many of you may have received this email before:
    Tick removal
    Spring will be here soon and the ticks will soon be showing
    their heads. Here is a good way to get them off you, your
    children, or your pets. Give it a try.

    Please forward to anyone with children... or hunters or dogs,
    or anyone who even steps outside in summer!!

    A School Nurse has written the info below -- good enough
    to share -- And it really works!


    "I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best
    way to remove a tick. This is great, because it works in
    those places where it's some times difficult to get to with
    tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark
    hair, etc."

    "Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick
    with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few
    seconds (15-20), the tick will come out on its own and be
    stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. This
    technique has worked every time I've used it (and that
    was frequently, and it's much less traumatic for the
    patient and easier for me."

    "Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this
    would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's
    wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her
    back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used
    this method and immediately called me back to say,
    "It worked!"

    Please pass on. Everyone needs this helpful hint.
    Here is what I found on the subject at snopes.com, the topic is unfortunately, FALSE.
