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. According to this widely circulated message, the best way to remove a tick is to cover it with liquid soap.
Health authorities note that the preferred method for removing a tick is to use fine-tipped tweezers.
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. 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.
Experts consider the application of substances such as soap or petroleum jelly as slower and less effective than manual methods such as using tweezers.
