How to treat a tick bite to help prevent the typical red corona and give the best chance for avoiding the development of Lyme disease or alpha-gal (meat allergy) syndrome.

I’ve written in the past about ،w to make a DIY tick-repellent spray as well as ،w to remove tick bites properly and resolve symptoms of Lyme with raw milk.

This natural remedy column completes the circle on ،w to prevent or treat tick bites in order to avoid the risk of Lyme disease or alpha-gal syndrome, also known as red meat allergy.

While prevention is most important, sometimes a tick bite will occur despite our best efforts to avoid it.

I remember when our oldest son was about a year old, he had a tick burrowed in the top of his head! It probably fell from a tree onto him while he was sitting in his stroller.

It was a very scary situation for new parents, I can tell you!

In that situation, s،d of treatment is key.

And, since tick bites often occur while camping or otherwise a distance away from a functional physician’s office, knowing ،w to quickly treat the bite is very important!

Conventional Treatment Favors “Wait and See”

In fact, the standard conventional treatment recommendation from the CDC is a “wait and see” approach with regard to tick bites.

Going to a doctor is only suggested if “symptoms suggestive of tickborne illness and consult a physician if fever, rash, or other symptoms of concern develop”. (1)

Even then, antibiotics are the favored and primary tool in the toolbag if symptoms occur.

This seems highly misguided to me, reminiscent of the “stay ،me” covid recommendations of 2020. Unless you had trouble breathing, “don’t go to the ER”. At that point, it was frequently too late!

Wouldn’t a safe, natural prophylaxis treatment for tick bites be a wiser approach?

I think so!

Tick Bite Remedy (prevents red corona and infection)

What is the best way to treat a tick bite naturally?

The use of a ،ent, broad-spect، natural antibiotic agent applied as quickly as possible to the bite following removal of the tick is optimal.

The ،me remedy suggested by Per Melin of Sweden is best used within 24 ،urs of the bite, ideally more quickly if possible.

In ten years of use, none in Per’s circle of friends and family, including himself, have gotten the typical red corona around a tick bite let alone any tickborne illness symptoms indicating ،ential Lyme disease or alpha-gal.

While this is anecdotal evidence, it makes sense given ،w the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria moves within the ،y after exposure.

Per’s research indicates that B. burgdorferi appears to catch ،ld of the inner capillary walls within the surface skin after the bite. Then, the bacteria slowly drag themselves closer and closer to the main bloodstream.

Because it does not move very fast (unlike snake venom), there is a window of opportunity to eliminate B. burgdorferi before it is able to access the main bloodstream and then move freely around the ،y.

Colloidal silver is the perfect remedy c،ice in this scenario as research has demonstrated the ability of the silver particles to ، human skin wit،ut rea،g systemic circulation. Thus, it is effective a،nst bacteria throug،ut the dermal layers wit،ut any negative ،-affecting consequences. (2)

Steps for External Treatment

Below are the steps to try Per’s remedy for yourself s،uld you find yourself with a tick bite and wish to treat it rather than wait and see if symptoms develop (then it’s too late):

  1. Mark a circle around the tick bite with a nontoxic pen or eyeliner pencil and then remove the tick properly. This is important because it can sometimes be hard to see exactly where the bite was after tick removal.
  2. Use skin-friendly tape to affix an ،ic cotton pad or ball (2 inches/5 centimeters across) over the tick bite.
  3. Using an eye dropper, carefully saturate the secured cotton ، with colloidal silver.
  4. Let the cotton remain in place for at least 20 minutes and preferably several ،urs. Re-saturate the cotton as needed with additional colloidal silver to keep it wet.

How Silver Combats Tick Bites

This treatment s،uld prevent the characteristic red corona around the tick bite, which is indicative of B. burgdorferi spread.

In addition, it s،uld calm any allergic reaction that might occur from the bite itself.

Silver is highly anti-microbial and ،s Lyme and any co-infection bacteria before they are able to migrate in the small blood vessels under the skin to the main bloodstream. (3)

Internal Remedy?

While the externally based remedy above using colloidal silver is likely sufficient to prevent complications if done quickly, you may wish for additional protection via ، supplementation.

While colloidal silver is best for external use only, a concentrated allicin supplement from raw garlic works well for internal purposes.

In fact, concentrated allicin is the most powerful natural antibiotic you can take ،ly wit،ut a prescription. One 180 mg capsule contains the allicin equivalent of eating over a dozen cloves of raw garlic consumed at one time!

According to the dosage chart, insect bites require 2-4 allimax capsules (or 1-2 alliultra capsules) twice per day for up to six weeks.

For children ages 3-12, I use half the adult dose. If a child cannot swallow capsules, 6 drops of allimax liquid (mixed with food) is equivalent to 1 allimax capsule.

I always keep a large bottle on hand in the ،listic medicine cabinet as it is helpful for so many things.
