How to get glass pieces out of thumb?

Jump to last reply

Ok, this is remotely travel related, but I need to get my thumb in working order, so I could kayak in Alaska at the end of May. I know the people on this forum are amazingly knowledgeable, so please help!

Question: How to remove very tiny pieces of glass embedded underneath the skin?

Background: I cut the inside part of my thumb when a glass I was washing broke on me. Now the wound is all sealed up, but the area still feels lumpy and it hurts when I put pressure on it. My doctor thinks some tiny glass pieces are still stuck in there, and suggests that I soak my thumb in very hot water. I've done it a few times, but haven't seen any results. He says if that doesn't work I'd need micro-surgery--done under a microscope--but that could be a bit risky as it might damage the nerves in my thumb.

Anyone has experienced with this? And what's the best remedy?

Thanks.
