Naturally Cure Splinter from Finger

Try these simple remedies to draw the splinter out from your finger:

  • Soak your finger in warm water (add a pinch of salt in it) for 10-15 minutes and as the skin becomes little soft try to pull the splinter out with the help of a sterilized tweezers.
  • Place a scotch tape or duct tape or sealing tape exactly over the splinter on the finger. Pull it off briskly and quickly, the splinter would come off with the tape from your finger. Try again if it doesn't come off in one shot.
  • Soak oil in a tissue and rub it against the splinter after cleaning the finger properly. Then with the help of your other finger push the end of the splinter towards the front. It would pain a bit but will ease your condition after the splinter is out.
  • Rub the inner part of the freshly peeled potato against the splinter and then remove it with your fingers or a pair of tweezers easily.
  • A little splinter might cause lot of pain sometimes but once it is off then things would be fine.
If the splinter can not be removed easily and if the finger gets swelled with pain then take help of specialist.
