Pull out the tick with splinter tweezers as close as possible to the skin, i.e. grasp the tick's head, no manipulation of the tick's body! If necessary removal by punch biopsy. Control of the borrelia serology (14 days and 6 weeks after tick bite).
In TBE virus endemic areas: treatment of complications if necessary. In case of tick bite inflammation: systemic antibiosis (give generous indication), furthermore external antiseptic therapy with polyvidon iodine ointment(e.g. Betaisodona). S.a. Borreliosis, Lyme disease, tick-bite fever, early summer meningoencephalitis.
