Prevention of Lyme disease consist in avoiding tick bites through:
If you find a tick, you should remove it immediately with tweezers. You need to grasp the tick next to the skin and gently but firmly pull it or twist it. You need to make sure that the head of the tick is not left in the skin. To remove a tick, you can also use special equipment available in pharmacies. The bitten place should be disinfected and hands should be washed thoroughly.
If the tick remains deeply embedded and you are afraid to remove it, you should immediately go to the doctor. Do not squeeze the tick, nor lubricate it with any spray such as gasoline, alcohol or fat. During these treatments the tick can spit bacteria into the skin.
