I'm assuming this splinter was the size of a twig? Maybe you should leave this kind of stuff to the professionals, genius.

However! There may have been an embarrassing story behind this 'twig' and how it became one with OP's hand. That going to the doctor would cause further embarrassment!

I've done the same thing as OP but my splinter was a nearly microscopic metal shard. It hurt enough that ripping open my skin was less painful. :)

Elena - I'm sure splinters would get seen by an ER doc. I am NOT an ER doc. I have seen a lot of broken glass embedded in lacerations, though. That's fun to remove!

I prefer using a chainsaw as means of removing any foreign objects lodged in my skin. Not only does the pain go away by slicing through the nerves, you cant get a splinter again because there's nithin left to splinter into.

105 How the fuck do you know if he is or not? Go to his blog and all further questions should be answered. I have never seen anyone stupid enough to fake their employment on this site

cjack188 - Yeah, that DocBastard guy is nothing more than a self-important, self-righteous douche! If you have any questions regarding my credentials, please PM me.

17- And a damn good excuse. I can't tell you how many times terrorists have tried to prod me to death with small pieces of wood, in the hopes that the splinters would get me.

Dude, seriously? Please limit political comments to forums and websites devoted to such opinions.

Sorry… it was meant as a sarcastic joke. He is something to joke about, right? (I'm too you to fully understand but he was a bad president, no?)

What's there not to get? OP dug, tore, and dug some more until he got the splinter out, and indirectly ripped up his hand.

Perhaps, though I'm contemplating, the OP had the splinter on his dominant hand and was extremely poor at coordinating the tweezers in his less dominant hand and ended up taking out more than just the splinter. Ouch.

Reply

Yeah I'm having a hard time imagining how it could happen. Unless he calls tweezers is his word for scissors...or chainsaw

Why do people get the impression that I'm 13. I'm turning 13 September 19th. Gifts are appreciated. Just checked my profile. To the account settings!

I have a splinter in my foot that's been there for years now. (Of course I can't feel it anymore but if I look close enough I can see it) And a lead pencil point in my right palm. (That too if I look close enough is still visible). Point is, you gotta take em out. If not they'll stay there.

*shakes head mournfully* Poor Socks...I warned him too late it seems. Should we attempt a rescue mission? Edit: Socks you're alive!

69- All Doc did was show me pictures of his recent patient who had a dangerous case of Fournier's Gangrene. Don't know what it is? Google image it.

Jesus, I have yet to see a single one of saintsrocksocks' comments be thumbed up. Perhaps 13 year olds should keep to their video games and whatnot.

I don't know if he's legitimately just twelve and retarded at posting or the worst, worst troll ever. Stop trying kid, or come back in six years when.. You know, you don't rely on mummy and daddy anymore for fucking splinters jesus.

Reply

Hmmmm.... When I was thirteen, my father would tell me to "rub some dirt on it and quit being a pussy." Just sayin'....

Reply

97 - first of all, he's thirteen. Second of all what are you doing, not being attached to a butt. I mean you are an asshole after all.

No, it was that tree from hog warts. It attacked you and you slew it, but it left a battle scar in the form of a splinter. Wear it proudly!

You should be embarrassed. It was just a splinter, no need to maim yourself. Those things usually come out on their own in a few days anyway.

Reply

You can actually get an infection that can lead to much worse situations if you leave the wood in your hand. A lot of the time, it doesn't come out on its own. It's very dangerous to just leave it.

someone must have been very determined to rip out that splinter, even if it caused a flesh wound in the process. either way its a lose-lose situation. fyl
