Review: Essential aid kit. Bought this after hearing about it at a Outdoor First Aid courses. Instructions sound easy enough. Has already been used to remove a tick I acquired in Glen Nevis. Worked like a charm. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Tick Card Removal Tool Instructions:
TICK-BORNE DISEASE: A small red itchy patch is a normal body-reaction to a tick bite but symptoms can be much more severe. Serious tick-borne diseases include Lyme disease (Lyme borreliosis) which is increasingly common throughout Europe and America.
SYMPTOMS: Symptom patterns vary from person to person. Early indications in the days after the bite can include flu-like symptoms, extreme tiredness, headache, muscle pain, tender glands and sensitivity to temperature, sound and light. In some cases you may see a roughly circular red rash, without itching or pain, that slowly spreads outwards. It may be clear in the middle and is often called a bull’s eye rash. Seek medical advice promptly if you are concerned or experience any of the above symptoms after a bite.
