Tip & How-To about Medical
All of us have at one time or another got a small foreign object embedded into the skin.
Tweezers work in some cases, where the splinter etc is visible or raised above the skin.
For those invisible but painful or irritating bits of glass, steel filings, grass-hairs that just won't come out, try:
Traxa, a cream-based product which helps to draw the offenders to the surface.
Sellotape, insulation tape, or duct-tape, sticky side pressed down then lifted.
Thin film of Wood glue / cold glue, allow to dry about 10 min then peel off.
Superglue, dried, may also remove top epidermis layer, but worked for me (glass).
In all cases, area should be disinfected to help prevent germs entering wound.
Warning: Liquid Superglue can run between fingers or under fingernails, so apply very cautiously and sparingly.
And watch those Cyanoacrylate fumes!

good for small areas that need hair removal such as; eyebrows, nose, knuckles
and around the nipple area. But this
would be much too time consuming and painful to do on large areas of your skin.
