Ticks are parasitic arachnids that attach tightly to the skin of their victims to feed on their blood.
If they clasp the skin tightly, they are extremely difficult to be removed.
Although most of the tick bites don’t cause any serious health problems, they can sometimes be responsible for an occurrence of an allergic reaction and, in some rare cases, paralysis.
Removal of a Stubborn Tick Bite
Certain species of these parasites transmit a number of diseases, including Lyme disease which can cause severe problems with your joints, heart, and nervous system.
If you are a tick victim, you are required to remove the tick immediately, to clean the attacked area on your skin, and to pay attention to any potential signs of illness.
The following video shows a tick removal from a man’s thigh.
During the attempts to remove the tick, this man’s skin becomes red, swollen and inflamed.
After sucking the man’s blood for several minutes, the stubborn tick is finally removed with a suction tube and a tick removing, tweezer-like, device.
This spine-chilling video demonstrates that even with the right equipment, it takes a long time to remove a tick.
