Worse yet, there are few instruments that are useful for extracting these incredibly annoying shards of material. What to do to prepare for this unfortunate circumstance? Order yourself a pair of Tweezer Guru’s Steel Pointed Tweezers and free yourself from the painful foreign piece.
Made from stainless steel, these tweezers will never rust (unless under extreme conditions, or damage to the outer protectant layer) and will not succumb to damage easily. The manufacturers of this helpful tool claim that, not only will the removal of the splinter be easy and without hassle, but the removal process will leave no scarring! This is a huge benefit, especially if the splinter has made its way to a very present area of the body.
Most people have tweezers but all too often we find our tweezers fail to grab onto the splinter due to misaligned tips—causing more damage, and more distress. Tweezer Guru’s Stainless Steel Pointed Tweezers, on the other hand, have virtually perfect aligned points and are great for grabbing onto pesky little shards. Another beneficial quality of these tweezers are the gripping shape of the handle—providing effortless handling and precision extraction.21

Get ’em Out
You might not think a splinter is a wound, but it is. Even though you shouldn’t let your friends hear you calling a splinter a wound, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat it like it is. A splinter can get infected, and while it may be painful to take out, it’s less painful that an infected splinter.
