I had to make an office visit once for a pesky tick that had adhered itself to my sons head and wasn't coming off after many unsuccessful attempts. The doctor came into the room armed with a fabulous device that looked slightly more engineered than basic tweezers, but within seconds that very cool tool had that tick off my boy and I was dazzled. She said the tool was from Europe and worked like a charm. Could you please track down the name of this handy dandy little item? My efforts on google have been nil. Thanks in advance.

You're right, if you find a tick on yourself or your child, the best thing to do is to remove it right away!  Then wash the spot well with soap and water, and watch for any rash developing at that site.  The tick removal device that the doctor found is European and not available locally.  It's labeled: Fastingplockare - Tick1E-mail:    More easily available here is the "Tick Key", which several of our staff members swear by, and carry on their key chains! You should have no trouble finding that one online.  Most ticks are harmless and do not carry Lyme disease, but keep checking your child each day, especially spring through fall.
