A tick bite can cause Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis. To prevent tick bites, it is important to cover the skin as much as possible with clothing, socks, and closed shoes, and to apply tick-repellent on areas of exposed skin. After visiting risk-areas (woods, dunes, gardens, and moors), it is important to check your body for tick bites. Always remove ticks as quickly as possible.
Insect and tick-repellents containing a range of ingredients are obtainable. For children, DEET-free products are generally the best option. Care Plus® Anti-Tick is based on lemon-eucalyptus extracts and contains 30% Eucalyptus Citriodora oil for a long-lasting effect against ticks. The product offers up to six hours’ protection and is safe for all the family, including for children aged three months and older.

How To Use:
For the most effective use of Care Plus Anti-Tick it should be applied sparingly and carefully to all parts of the body not covered by clothing - the repellent should be spread evenly over the skin. Avoid contact with mucous membranes, eyes, nose (nasal passages) and lips - to protect the face from insect bites first apply the lotion to the palm of your hand and use your hand to apply carefully to your face. Care Plus Anti-Tick should not be applied to damaged skin (cuts, scratched or sunburn) and areas where skin folds occur, such as behind the knees or inside the elbows, should either not be treated, or be treated very lightly.
Care Plus Anti-Tick should ideally be applied at least 10 minutes before exposure to direct sunlight, and very importantly, when combined with a sun block the sun block should be applied FIRST and if possible you should wait 30 minutes before application of the Anti-Tick Spray. When protection is no longer required all areas of the skin where application took place should be washed.
Information on Care Plus Anti-Tick products:
A tick is a spider-like arthropod parasite. Ticks can be found in the garden, in the fields while trailing and in the forests during walking. It feeds on the blood of animals and people. A tick can transmit bacteria, viruses and parasites while sucking blood. Borrelia burgdorferi, the cause of Lyme disease, is the most well-known and dangerous bacterium that may be present in a tick. A red ring around the bite area (Erythema migrans) may be one of the first symptoms of Lyme disease. This disease can eventually lead to serious health complaints.
