Got metal splinter in foot and white puss is coming out, I can't get it out. Will it draw out itself?

Foreign body

Extremity-foot
Not necessarily. And the fact that you have pus coming out of the foot shows that there is an infectious process. I would recommend evaluation by a podiatrist asap. If you can't be seen, go to the ER. You need someone to look at the foot, get the metal out, place you on antibiotics and make sure your tetanus status is up to date.

my daughter has a splinter in her foot and its so small yhat I cant reach it with twizzers,what is the best way to get it out fast? Help

I use a needle

Birth_defects
When these come into the office it is often because parents have not been able to get them out. I rely on magnification/light & the business end of an injection needle to scoop the splinter out. If it is superfical enough, I don't need to numb the area with anesthetic. if the splinter is very small and the kid has no pain while walking,you could leave it alone. Some will work themselves out.

How Can you get a sticker out of your bare foot ?

A splinter?

Extremity-foot
If you have a splinter, seek care from a podiatrist. Trying to dislodge it yourself may cause infection, push it in deeper, or both.

If you can't grasp the end, try soaking in warm water and squeezing skin to help push out. If cant get it out consult podiatrist.

Do I need to get the screw taken out of my foot from my bunion surgery?

Not usually

Bunion
Screws are generally left in place after bunion surgery. Sometimes the screw head is prominent and can be irritated by shoes. Occasionally, even after the bone is healed, there can be a vague aching sensation. This is because the screw and bone flex differently. These would be cases where you would want to consider removal. This is often done through a small incision under local anesthesia.

I can't get the sand out of my husband's foot wound- should i take him to the er?

More trauma-bad

Extremity-foot
When there is skin injury, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling.Fluid collects under the skin layers and then leaks out the open wound. The fluid contains water, protein, electrolytes and cells and washes out the wound of foreign material. This natural process aids healing. As it heals, the drainage will decrease. Trauma from washing is a bad idea
