    Ward off tick-borne illnesses with these tips from Munson Army Health Center. To avoid direct contact with ticks, stay away from wooded areas with high grass and leaf litter, and walk in the center of trails. To repel ticks, use repellant that contains 20 percent or more of diethyltoluamide (DEET), picaridin or IR3535 on exposed skin and products that contain 0.5 percent permethrin on clothing. Follow all product instructions. To find and remove ticks on the body, bathe within two hours of coming indoors, conduct a full body tick check, examine gear and pets, tumble dry clothes on high heat for 10 minutes for dry clothing and, if clothing requires washing first, wash in hot water if possible or wash regularly then tumble dry on low heat for 90 minutes or high heat for 60 minutes. Symptoms of illness from a tick bite include rash and fever and can develop several weeks following the bite. If you or a family member has become ill following a tick bite, call Munson Army Health Center at 684-6250 for an appointment with a health care provider.
