12 years into living with lyme, consistently working with professionals to find a path to health, I'd like to clarify best practice for tick removal:
Tweezers, grab insect as close to skin as possible and then quickly pull it straight out.
Any other action, such as heating OR suffocating the tick will cause the insect to regurgitate and increase chances of causing infection.
This technique is easy to find online. In the US they are even selling these little plastic tick removal tools that are similar, but actually better than tweezers.
Also once I had been infected, then all future bites were problematic for up to 6 months. In spite of tick being removed, the site remained itchy, red, swollen and clearly infected.
