The plastic applicator cap should not be removed from the aerosol!
Step 1: Position the opening of the applicator 1 cm above the tick (note: do not touch the skin or the tick!).
Step 2: Hold the aerosol as vertically as possible. Press vigorously 4 times to freeze the tick. Note: If the tick still moves after treatment, repeat the treatment again after 10 minutes.
Step 3: The tick dies from the freezing. If the tick does not fall off the skin by itself, it can be carefully removed with the supplied tick removal card.
If the tick removal card is additionally needed:
Check the size of the tick with the magnifying glass on the tick remover card. If it is a small tick (< 2 mm) use the small indentation of the tick removal card. However, most ticks, even the somewhat smaller ones, can be removed effortlessly with the larger notch.
Step 4: Make sure you have a good view of the tick.
Step 5: Place the tick removal card close to the skin with the notch facing the tick. Slide the tick removal card close to the skin towards the tick so that it enters the slit of the tick removal card.
Step 6: Once the tick is trapped in the narrow part of the slit, continue to slide calmly and carefully. The tick comes loose and remains stuck in the tick removal card.
Caution! Disinfect the wound with a little bit of alcohol and note the spot of the tick bite. Disinfect the tick removal card with hot water or alcohol.
