When a tick bite should immediately contact the clinic by place of residence, namely to the infectious diseases ward. This incident is not classified as urgent, so you will be only in the order queue. If your clinic is not a specialist in infectious diseases, you will be redirected to the nearest medical facility, where available.
If the tick has bitten you in the day, feel free to contact a nearby emergency room. If you have not been vaccinated against tick-borne encephalitis, you immediately enter tick immunoglobulin, and then will prescribe a course of antibiotics to prevent Lyme disease – one of the deadly diseases. It is desirable when applying to the emergency room to have a passport and medical insurance.
In major towns and cities of Russia have labs where you can apply for removal of the tick and testing for the presence of infectious diseases. However, such laboratories are often private, so the medical examination and any subsequent treatments you will have to pay.
If you are bitten by a tick while traveling, you need to contact an ambulance and to check with the attendant where the nearest emergency room or other medical facility where staff can help you to get rid of the parasite. Turning to the medical institution where you are registered, you may be asked to show the policy of obligatory medical insurance.
If you have no opportunity to consult specialists, you can try to remove the parasite yourself, but it should be done very carefully. You need to pinch the tick with tweezers, and then gently twist, without squeezing it, and without making any sharp movements. It is necessary that the parasite came fully together with the trunk. If the trunk is still off, clean the bite with alcohol and then with the help of heated needle to remove the head of the tick. To check the tick in the laboratory we need to keep him alive by placing in a glass jar.
