    Good story of determination. Place outdoor clothing in the dryer on high first for 20 minutes before putting them in the washer. Some ticks are stronger than others.

    “An ounce of permethrin is worth a pound of antibiotics” –Dr. E. Maloney
    Permethrin is both a repellent and an insecticide. It is safe if used as directed and is not absorbed through our skin. https://tickencounter.org/prevention/permethrin If you are in the U.S. I would suggest you find permethrin factory treated socks and clothing. The factory treated clothing is good for 70 washes.

    Spraying your footwear with permethrin cuts tick bites down by 73.6%
    You still need to use a repellent for your skin such as 20% icaridin or picaridin. Permethrin won’t work on your skin as it s neutralized within 20 minutes. Prompt thorough tick checks are always in order.
