My dad allways put a lit cigarette near the tic. It tickles when it moves, but then it would let go.

Did you get them Paintballing?

if i were you, go to the doctor. i got bit by a tick once my doctor made me get a blood test because alot of ticks carry lime disease.

also when you shower try and find something rough to scratch your skin real hard

i just rip them off....it feels like ripping off a scab.

fun tho...when they're off i get a spray bottle full of gasoline and then light them on fire...they dance!!!

nope, i didn't get them pbing...

doe-i seriously doubt that would work...but if i get one tomarrow i'll definitly try it

you DO NOT want to do that

the head can stay alive, and still be within your skin without you knowing. My grandmother had to have surgury because she did that^. It got infected, and left a nasty scar.

You can probly slowly take it off, but no ripping.

"Ticks suck"? Well, of course. That's how they get blood.

They have to be attached to you for 24 hours before they can give you lime disease, though.

I found out that to get the head stuck in your skin you have to bring your fingernails together and when you pull it aputates the head, leaving it in. It says check the place of the bite periodically and if the head is left in your skin it will have the same symptoms as a wood sliver.

so yea, if it looks like i have a sliver i'll go to my doctor.

edit: just checked in the mirror, nothin so far.

i know what u can do! grow ur own paintballs!!! become a tick farm and when they get big enuff use um as paintballs! save u a ton of money!

edit: Whoa! wait dont do that! i just remembered they carry deaseases and such which could kill you and the blood splattering on other people from playing could give them the desease and then they would spred it and soon every one would be sick and dieng from it and it would be my fault. so please dont end humanity as we know it!

the correct way to take one off is to hold onto it, and spin it as you take it off like a bottle cap. this way when it comes out the head usually comes with it. you DO NOT want to leave the heads in.
I don't know all this from personal experience, but we had some stray dogs around one time, and my dad would help them out with their ticks.

Make sure you don't get one in your ******. You'll slowly become paralyzed from your feet up. It happened on House.

i'm pretty sure i didn't rip the head off...i've read things and they say it'll look like a wood splinter and begin to itch a day or more after.

plus, i've taken my fair share of ticks out of my body and haven't gotten anything yet.

yeah, dont rip them out, the heads stay in and get in your blood stream. best bet is to do like spartan said, burn their back sides a bit.
