How to get this splinter out of my hand?
I got a piece of it out but there still a little piece inside my hand and i get to it...what should i do?

First, freeze your hand with ice cubes, dry it off, and then dig baby dig with tweezers or a sterilized needle.

If its not bothering you, and it is too dificult to try to remove, I would recommend just leaving it. Your body will naturally push it out in time. I have done this with splinters before and had no problems.

use a safety pin. burn it first

first scratch one way dont go back and forth
then pull it out with tweezers

best way I found was to get a needle and "dig" at it. Pour Hydrogen Peroxide over it to make sure you don't get an infection to begin with. Also, make sure to sanitize your needle (run through fire or something like that.)

soak your hand in warm water. if it doesnt work its way out, use pointy tipped tweezers.

depends how deep it went in (i had one off a pallet, go thru my finger =/ and had to go hosiptal)

you need a pair of tweezers for a start, and because it went in at an angle, u might need to pull a bit of the skin away to get leverage on it..

and use an ice cube to numb the finger.

Make sure it doesnt get infected and wait for it to work its day out or take tweesers and just work at it. If that doesnt work to go the doc and they can get it out.

sterilize a needle and get it out.

A steralized needle!

use tweezers or a needle

Well it depends on how its in there I guess. The way I do it is I just take the finger nail clippers and take out the whole thing with the skin but not everyone is as tough as me, but I really hate splinters sooo, go figure!
