Splinters


I got a splinter under my nail today, it's a small piece of wood from an old stud that I got when roughing in a kitchen.

It went right in under my nail, I could see it there but I can't get it out. I cut the nail back as far as I could but it's still not enough, I can't grab the splinter with tweezers, pins, etc.

Do I really have to go to a doctor for a damn splinter?

I guess it comes down to how much of an annoyance it is to you. It should fester and work out in time if left alone as long as it doesn't get severely infected. Excessive swelling is a thing to look for initially. If you are due for a tetanus booster, that would be a reason to go to the Dr.

I got it out. I would have left it in there but it hurt too much so I had to work on getting it out and going to a doctor wasn't really an option.

It's funny how much smaller it is than it looked like under the nail I thought it was going to be huge

I can't imagine what bamboo shoots under the fingernails much be like
