Splinter In Foot Can T Get Out
Got metal splinter in foot and white puss is coming out, I can't get it out. Will it draw out itself?
Foreign body: 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. ...Read more

My daughter has a splinter in her foot and its so small yhat I can't reach it with twizzers, what is the best way to get it out fast? Help
I use a needle: 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. ...Read more

18 mo old has wood splinter in his toe. Leave it be or try to get it out? I don't want it to get infected (obviously!)
Wood you believe?: Because of the relatively small size of the toe at this age, removing the splinter is not as difficult as expected. Having said that, I much prefer that the splinter work it's self out. Less traumatic experience for both patient and parent. Depending on the many possible circumstances, soaking repeatedly tends to make self extraction easier. Many times a mild cellulitis also delivers the splinter. ...Read more
