(Cleveland) -- Lots of people are starting to get outdoors as the temperatures rise, but with that comes the risk of getting bitten by a tick that can transmit Lyme disease. Doctor Alan Taege with Cleveland Clinic recommends checking your body for ticks as soon as you come inside. He says ticks will bite anywhere on your body but they typically prefer secluded areas like your hair or under your arms. He says the smallest ticks are brownish in color and about the size of two pinheads. He recommends checking for ticks from head to toe, and says it's a good idea to have somebody check your scalp. Docto Taege recommends getting a pair of fine nose tweezers and carefully removing any ticks you find by pulling it out from the head.
