    splinters how do you get them out??

    This is a thread out off desperation

    For the last few days iv had a little pin ***** type cut on the first joint off my little finger,

    Now normally i can deal with cuts n bruises but this is annoying everytime i bend my finger it hurts and its got pretty stiff.

    I know what it is other day back off truck was covered in smashed glass and when picking up one off the straps i fealt somthing go in my finger but forgot about it so its probably a glass splinter.

    I cant dig it out as its my right hand and im right handed. And the soaking my hand hasnt worked. Iv tried digging it out but just started hurting more.



    Any ideas how you get um out?

    Put your hand in really hot water for a while, then keep squeezing and use the mrs's tweezers! (Or a pin)

    As above. i get the wee wood splinters off pallets quite a bit. had one stuck for days and eventually brute force worked. if you can see the hole where it has became in-bedded then use tweezers to get the skin out the way, then try pushing it out using your fingernail.

    if its in too deep to get at with a tweezers i usually get a penknife with a sharp tip and make a small cut to get it out that way the pain of the cut goes away quicker than walking around with a splinter stuck in there

    You could lob off the offending finger!!!! Or put your finger/hand into hot water and let it go wrinckly like when you stay in the bath for a longtime. this will soften the skin then using a pin push around the splinter this will start to force it out and then the pain will be gone..

    But this is a too good of an oportunity to miss

    "you should be used to having a p rick in your hand!!!" lol just kidding
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    I just cut along the top with a stanley knife, and then fish the bugger out with a pin

    Put a plaster over it, wait for it to fester a bit, then it will work its way out by itself.

    Other than that, a needle is good, but no good if you are right handed as you say.

    I had a horses hair get inbetween my fingers when I was clipping it, I didn't realise until about a week later when I grew this lovely lump of pus and it appeared in that. Quite a long bit of hair as well so rather satisfying lol
