(Video) How to Remove a Splinter From Underneath a Fingernail. It’s Painful But Necessary!


Splinters are painful and a little nerve-wracking to remove. Fortunately, getting a splinter wedged in one or more of your fingers is a pretty rare experience, unless you work with wood on a daily basis.

We've got a brief video for you that shows you how to remove a splinter from your finger as painlessly as possible.

This video is short and to-the-point. As you will see, all you need is a pair of sharp tweezers and a little patience.

Also, don't forget that you will also need to take good care not to embed the splinter in further.

You can check out the informative how-to video on the next page.

    B…S… There is know way. The only reason he didn’t have to go to the hospital is because it came out in one piece. It’s not like the had to split his finger nail in half then cut it down to get the rest. I almost puked from how much it hurt
