Splinters

 

Splinters are foreign bodies that are partially or fully embedded in the skin. Splinters usually are wood, but metal, glass, and plastic materials may be considered a splinter.

To Remove a Splinter:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly before attempting to remove the splinter.
  2. Before trying more invasive method, squeeze the splinter from both sides and the bottom of the splinter to try and work it back the way it came.
  3. Clean a needle and a pair of tweezers. Use the needle to open up the skin above the splinter enough to grab the splinter with the tweezers and remove it. If the needle doesn't work, a pair of nail clippers can be used on the skin.
  4. Grasp the end of the splinter with the tweezers and back it out of the skin.
  5. Wash the wound with warm water.
