When a splinter formed, then get rid of it as soon as possible. You can do this in many ways. Not all of them are characterized by a high level of effectiveness and painlessness. However, there is one proven “grandfather” way to solve this problem using, oddly enough, carpentry. As you know, a wedge is knocked out by wedge!
How To pull a splinter in A simple and painless way?
In fact, the described method of getting rid of the annoying and “painful” splinter is extremely simple. It is equally well suited both for getting rid of metal splinters and for getting rid of wooden ones. A needle for the miraculous salvation of a beloved, in this case, is not needed, so you can immediately exhale. Instead, we take sandpaper! It sounds cool, but in practice, it really works with a bang.
Of course, you can’t take any sandpaper anyway. Need one that is used for the primary processing of the material. These include the following markings: 12H (P100), 16H (P90), 20H (P80). Also, for work, you will need hydrogen peroxide or potassium permanganate, and also without fail greenback. It will not be superfluous to have tweezers on hand.
So then everything is simple. We take the prepared sandpaper and spend several times in the direction of the movement of the splinter. If you are lucky, then this simple action in a few movements will allow you to completely get rid of a foreign object in the body. If not, then the splinter should be moved under the skin as close to the exit as possible, and then put in the tweezers and grabbed the tip to pull it away.
It is very important not to delay with stretching since the splinter remaining in the skin or even under the skin can provoke irritation, infection, swelling, and other unpleasant complications. As a result, it will be even more difficult to extract a foreign body, and the process itself will become an order of magnitude more painful.
After extraction, it is necessary to treat the wound first with hydrogen peroxide or potassium permanganate, and then grease with iodine. This is necessary in order to exclude the likelihood of infection and swelling in the future. In addition, it is highly discouraged to use a needle to stretch. This tool should be put into operation only as a last resort and only after disinfection.
