I don't know if anyone's posted about this yet, but this tick removal tool looks interesting. I haven't used one, and would be interested to know if anyone here has, and if it works like they say --
----------- But, I'd rather have allicin capsules stashed everywhere. I'd take that in an emergency anytime.
Colloidal Silver is also a consideration. I have some in a small vial in my tick-bite kit. Silver solution would go on the bite and in my mouth.
One cannot take homeopathic and allicin, though as allicin's strong odor would likely cancel out the homeopathic. I'm not an expert but it's good to find out.
If one carries allicin capsules , rotate all your stashes frequently and keep in very tightly sealed containers. Best to avoid getting capsules too hot as they will loose potency.
Doxy could be carried but it would not also address other tick-borne infections. Allicin stands more of a chance of that when immediate use (as it can be helpful against malaria so it may be against babesia if taken right away (?). Colloidal silver, may, but I'm not sure what all that would cover.
I'd love to see an emergency guide for the various situations - if anyone is aware of any books or articles that speak to that, written by those who really know more about all this. I'm just thinking out loud.
Tick bite kits need more than just tweezers. -
