Tick Season is Here!


The school nurse asks students to be careful, because tick season is here.  There are different kinds of ticks: one of them is a dog tick, which is brown, with different patterns, and it does carry some diseases. Another kind of tick is the deer tick, which carries Lyme Disease that transmits as a bacteria. If a deer tick stays on your body for more than 24 hours, then you should call your doctor to be tested, but make sure you bring the tick with  you. When you have a tick, the best way to remove it is with a piece of tape.  Wrap the tick in the tape. Be sure to watch for any rash or inflammation.
