TICK BITE PREVENTION


DEET, showers, and tick checks can stop ticks. Reduce your chances of getting a tickborne disease by using repellents, checking for ticks, and showering after being outdoors. If you have a tick bite followed by a fever or rash, seek medical attention.

When enjoying activities such as gardening, camping, hiking, and playing outdoors, don’t forget to take steps to prevent bites from ticks that share the outdoors. Ticks can infect humans with bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause serious illness.

BEFORE YOU GO OUTDOORS:
Treat clothing and gear with products containing permethrin. Permethrin can be used to treat boots, clothing, and camping gear and remains protective through several washings. Use EPA registered insect repellents; Do not use insect repellent on babies younger than 2 months old, and do not use products containing oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or para-menthane-diol (PMD) on children under 3 years old.

AFTER GOING OUTDOORS:
Check clothing and body for ticks after being outdoors and shower soon after being outdoors.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE AN ATTACHED TICK:
Remove the attached tick as soon as you notice it by grasping with tweezers, as close to the skin as possible, and pulling it straight out. For detailed information about tick removal, see the tick removal pageWatch for signs of illness such as rash or fever in the days and weeks following the bite, and see a health care provider if these develop. Your risk of acquiring a tick-borne illness depends on many factors, including where you live, what type of tick bit you, and how long the tick was attached. If you become ill after a tick bite, see a health care provider.
