how to take out a stubborn wood splinter from the heel?

It is important to remove the wood splinter completely to avoid any kind of infection.

  • Clean your hands and the knee area, slowly pinch the knee area, this will cause the wood splinter to pop up. Use a sterilized tweaser and pull it out carefully without leaving any part of it in the skin.
  • You can also use a duct tape. Clean the area and apply duct tape over it. Rip it off carefully.
