The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
OW!!!!! Ouchy HOLY SHIT!!!! Damn!

I went to scoop up a letter that had fallen on the floor. The letter had fallen around the computer chair. The computer chair doesn't have a plastic floor-saving mat under it, so the wood is all chewed up.

Can you see where this is going? I scooped up the letter and drove a quarter inch splinter waaaaay down deep underneath my fingernail. It's still in there and I have no idea how to get it out. It hurts as much as you think it would, too.


It hurts just as much now as it did 15 minutes ago. Any idea on how to get that thing out of there?




Did you try cutting the nail all the way down to see if you can see the end of the splinter?

That's what I'm steeling myself into doing. I think I'll wait for someone to get home cuz I don't think I'll have the heart to pull it out myself. Also-- right now it's just throbbing but it kinda starts the real hurt all over again when I put any pressure on it, so clipping it is a slow and cowardly process.

Not really, but OWWWWW! I agree on cutting the nail, how to without cutting the splinter though?

Try soaking in water for a really long time after you cut back the nail as far as possible. Good luck!
