A couple nights ago, my husband came home from worked and was complaining about his foot. He concluded that there was a piece of metal that got into his shoe and that metal as he was walking and walking accidentally penetrates to his foot. He complained after a couple days that it happened. I checked his foot and saw the spot, the pus was already developed and the area was sore. It was very hard to get the splinter out because it was inside his skin, it was not sticking out.
He had the tweezer but I did not used i for I knew first hand, it would not worked. I grabbed my nipper the one that I used to removed my cuticles. It took 10-15 minutes for me to removed the metal. I had to dug deeper because the splinter was in the skin. It hurt but I was thankful that we don’t have to go to the doctor for that matter.

As I was browsing , searching for some ways on how to remove a splinter without using any needles or any sharp thing to get the splinter out. I came across to this interesting article. I never heard of “epsom salts” or “magnesium sulfate” to use in removing splinter. My daughter had a splinter before and it was so hard, she was crying to the top of her lungs because she was feeling the pain.
How to use the Epsom Salt
-a pinch of epsom salt and place it on the bandage, wrapped it on your affected area .
-change once a day or whenever the bandage get wet.
Wait for a couple of days, expect for the splinter to work its way out and when that happen, pull using the tweezer and for the remaining splinter, keep putting the epsom salt.
For Magnesium Sulfate
- simply put some amount of it on the affected area until the splinter comes out.
