Wedon'tneedsthis
go to a doctor right away,and they'll be able to help you.


familydailey
If they are sticking out the least little bit, you could try duct tape or you could scrape them out using a thin, flat edge to rub in the opposite direction of the way the shards are in your skin. Both have worked for us in the past.

HTH!

Why would you not use tweezers? You could try putting a piece of duct tape across it, but you'll have to make sure to do it gently. Duct tape sticks to everything and will probably get it out. First choice: Try tweezers.

There is a saave on the market, (can't remember the name?) but it's green and most pharmisists, should know what it's called.....It will bring the (whatevers in there) to the surface so you can pluck it out........otherwise, hit the nearest ER

Soak your hand in water until it gets wrinkly and puffy, you might then find it easier to remove the glass splinters. I know it works very well for wood splinters.

If you can't get them out, see a doctor. The last thing you need is an infection.

the best way to get anything out of your skin with out tweezers, is to use a piece of tape. scotch tape, duct tape, whatever you got. it works every time.


Dc3402
Duct tape. Seriously. Gently apply it in a direction that will not push the glass any deeper and then peel it back. If that doesn't work, see a Dr. They can give you something for pain and remove all of the glass.

TRY USING PRID SALVE. CAN GET IT AT WALGREENS, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS AND IT DOES WORK, IT TOOK A LARGE BROKEN PIECE OF GLASS OUT OF MY FOOT, AS IT HEALS IT PUSHES THE OBJECT OUT


fitpro11
Be VERY careful with glass -- my understanding is that glass is just about the only solid that will work its way DEEPER if you don't deal with it properly. Wood, stone, plastic, and so on, tend to work their way out over time.

I think it depends on the size, and more importantly, the SHAPE of the shards. The thinner and sharper, the worse. Get medical attention if you can. If not, get that hand under a bright light and use very Gentle pressure with tweezers -- you don't want to break the shard apart before you get it out -- and go slowwwwww. I know of no other way than the use of tweezers for this, or I'd share it with you...

Best to You... :)

Try some tweezers!

If you have some Elmer's Glue apply it where you have the glass, let it dry and then peel it off. This may work.

use a needle, but sterilize it with flame and cool with alcohol

Have you tried soaking your hand in warm water? That may open the pores so that you could brust them off, depending how deep they are. You may also want to put some Epsom-Salts in the water, that will help sooth, and take out some of the soreness. Other than that you may want to call VitaLine at 1-888-815-5188, that is a service at New Hanover Regional Medical Center that has a Nurse at all times day and night that answers queston's (Medical) , and if they think you need to be seen then they will recomend that. Good Luck. I'm sure this is a toll free call.

Duct tape, My Dear.

I've used it when mountain biking with cactus!

It worked really well for that.

Good luck and let me know how it works.

i'm not a doctor but I know when you put your skin into warm water it opens up your pores, so try that aand take a rag with some Antibacterial soap and after you let your hand stay under water for a minute then you can lightly brush it .


flowerspirit2000
BATHE IT XTRA XTRA LONG IN HOT SALTY SOAPY WATER....IT SHOULD FLOAT OUT OR THE SKIN WILL BE SOFTENED TO THE POINT OF EXPOSING THEM TO TWEEZE AWAY OR WIPE GENTLY AWAY WITH A MOIST WIPE...

A needle might work, if not you really need to find a doctor/ first aid kit, tweezers are the most helpful. Good luck!
