can't see the end of it, it's completely in my hand! I got it from our kitchen table... I'm ticked off about it. It's in my palm on my left hand and can't grip scissors right with my other hand from carpal tunnel. I dunno what to do =(



I got it out just now!! like 24 hours after getting the darn thing! My mom tried last night and couldn't get it, it was too deep. I just said F it and went to bed last night. I've been soaking my hand, plus doing dishes and all... I decided to try once more and just pushed on the skin and it came right out. Thank the good Lord! It was getting super sore.

Elmers glue. Let it dry, then peel. I haven't tried it but it was on Pinterest

Soak your hand in hot water to moisten your skin and try digging it out with a needle or safety pin.

i soaked it and tried with tweezers, i have no needles or anything sharp. I have no idea what to do. My mom always got these out for me lol! She's good at that crap, i'm not. This sucks.

For the time being, put some Neosporin and a bandaid and see if it eventually finds its own way out. It will save you the pain of it touching other things other than the bandaid, and the Neosporin will help with pain, until you can find a way to get it out

Clear nail polish works too.

Make a paste out of baking soda and water and put it over the splinter. When it's drying it will draw the splinter out
