 Is there anything natural I can do for a tick bite? I found a tick on two of my little ones today....they are deer ticks. I removed them properly and put antibiotic ointment on them...check them well and their sister for more....didn' find any...thank goodness! Anything esle I should do?

Does anyone know if washing with extra borax and white vinegar is enough to kill any that might still be in our clothes? We think they may have gotten on their clothes when we went camping over the fourth...and that when they took something out of their duffle bags to wear that the ticks were on it....or maybe on the blankets we had with us... Never dealt with ticks before....grrr!

If you have any bentonite clay (or product containing it- face mask) put that on it and let it dry. Then wash it off. Bentonite clay will draw out anything that may be left in there.
