Getting a piece of glass out of my foot.
If the gash is big enough for stitches, you really should get to someone who can properly irrigate it and sew it up.
It must be clean. Seriously.
as the stain glass person....how big a piece and where is it stuck...most likey its shard you cant really see but can really feel? right?
Fax your foot to me and I will remove the glass.
Just cut off the foot.
Splinters Treatment: First Aid Information for Splinters
Try hydrogen peroxide too...in place of the baking soda to flush it out. Once you get it out (use a magnifying glass and clean tweezers) keep it clean and let it heal.
I forgot that part...
And Luissa, if you can't get it out they may have to amputate, sorry.
I would be able to remove it using an 18G needle attached to a syringe and use the cutting edge of the bevel as sort of a scapel.
However, my arms aren't long enough to reach you.
Try soaking it and use a sterilized needle to unroof the entrance tunnel. But, you might need to seek professional assistance.
I'm not sure I like it when Dr. xotoxi gets all serious in his posts...
Leave it to xotoxi to talk about a woman's 'entrance tunnel'.
