TINY TINY pieces of glass in skin


Question Posted Wednesday June 30 2010, 9:44 pm

I was in an accident last night and the glass shattered and got everywhere! I can feel the stinging feeling when I touch certain places because that's where the glass is. Some of it is pretty deep down in my skin. I was wondering, more like hoping, that the pieces of glass, no bigger than a needle's point, would just drop off, or come out after some time? Like my skin would just ejects it?
I dont want to live with glass in my skin, its uncomfortable.

Thank you.

Leaving the glass in your skin is not the best thing. I infact dont think its really safe. Your skin will not "eject" the shard of glass. instead it will just stay in there and your skin will start to close up around it. Go to the doctors or the emergincy room asap and tell them what happend. tell them that you have a tiny shard of glass in your skin show them where it is and ask them to remove it. It may cost you some money but it is better then getting an infection and havin some major compleications with the glass in your skin

You should see your doctor or go to a local emergency room. If the glass is deep with in your skin you will need a doctor to decide the best way to handle the problem. Glass does not show up on most X-rays so they are going to have to feel for the shards in order to figure out what to do.

Leaving them in the skin may or may not cause infection, only a doctor or a nurse can make that call. Until you see a doctor if the skin is still broken, keep it clean and bandaged.
