Self DIY: Forearm splinter vs. finger nail clipper Β Who wins?

Quote: “…I’m not attempting to take the splinter out. I want my body to, I want it to fester out so my body can automatically push it out.” (Oh so definitely a PTZ Popologist!!!)

YT Commentary:

“I have a splinter in my arm and its getting infected, making my eyes water and my nose run, and im feeling weak, tired, drawn out, cant stop sneezing, so it’s gotta come out, and I played doctor on myself.”

    • Looks A LOT like a bottle of Old Spice aftershave cologne!!! Wonder about the story behind how a large splinter got in the forearm πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Hysterically entertaining video! GREAT post!

    • Actually, Celine…aftershave is a wonderful source of alcohol. Especially, if a formal bottle of rubbing alcohol is not handy. My biggest concern, as a physician, is the mode of extraction. He didn’t say, but I sincerely hope he soaked those “clippers” in the aftershave. You can’t even fathom the numbers of bacterium and germs that reside on something that disgusting.

      The splinter wasn’t this guys issue. Like he said, normally the body pushes out splinters, naturally. I’m not sure about that one, considering it’s size. Nope…the reason he might have his arm amputated is because he used those finger/toe nail clippers to dig into his skin to remove the splinter. I just hope infection doesn’t set up in there.

      • I think I’m remembering this right, there was a study done, not sure what the actual purpose of it was for, but they found that nurses with the big fake fingernails, had some phenomenal amount of bacteria under under their nails.

  • I’m speechless, that really squiked me out! I could just imagine the little toe nail clipping dust getting inside his arm. It was so unsanitary I couldn’t keep watching. I’m trying to think of something positive to end this with but it’s really hard. So, I’m positive that video is a perfect example of how not to remove a splinter.

  • Genacyst, G-d was certainly watching over him! I was just as surprised as he was when his body pushed it out… most people’s bodies are not so cooperative, hence the need for doctors.

  • A lot of after shave lotion has or used to have, alcohol in it, that’s why it stings so much.
    I don’t know if that means it’s good for wounds, but that’s the reasoning behind it.

    Old Spice’s original ingredients were: orange, lemon, spices, clary sage, aldehydes, cinnamon, carnation, geranium, jasmine, heliotrope, pimento berry, vanilla, musk, cedar wood, frankincense, benzoin, tonka bean, ambergris.

  • I use ’em all the time to pull out splinters. That one looked like it had been there a while. Isopropyl (denatured) alcohol works well for me. (I’m too cheap to use good aftershave) The sharp edges on fingernail clippers make for a good grip on the splinter, and you can adjust the tension on the splinter without cutting it off. Our family doctor showed me how to do this in the early ’60’s, when he took a 1″ splinter out of my brother’s leg that had been in there for months. (part of a bleacher seat) The doc is still around,although in his late 80’s,but I’m sure he wouldn’t do it this way today. It works for me,though!! (as well as my kids & grandkids)

  • DAYAM!!!!! My son-in-love almost ending uo in the hospital from staph inefction using OLD and RUSTY nail cliipers when he clipped his nails. He has a grade A hissy **ZIT**y fit when my daughter threw the clippers away πŸ™

    Throw the clippers in the video AWAY NOW.They are hard to sterilize anyway because clippers are now made with cheap pot metal. I will even send the man a dollar to buy another clipper at the cash register of his favorite curb store . Staph/MRSA ain’t worth the IV drugs needed to kill the nasty little germies.
