Being outdoors is wonderful, but it has its risks. The rash and tick bites are almost guaranteed if you spend a day in the woods. However, some rashes are a little harder to distinguish.
How to prevent a tick bite
Wear protective clothing such as long sleeves and pants, thick socks and closed shoes, especially if you are walking in wooded areas. Put your pants into your socks so that the ticks cannot get in (you should know that they are very agile).
Apply essential oils that repel ticks, such as citronella, clove, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon grass, mint, rosemary essential oils and teas.
Check yourself and your children after a long time spent outdoors.
Immediately remove ticks if you see them.
After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the area and your hands with alcohol or soap and water.
