Need tips of removing glass shard from my foot.

How do you remove a small piece of glass embedded in the sole of you foot, in the heel?

Tried tweezers, soaking it in hot water and squeezing on both sides but I can't get hold of it at all.

This is just a crazy shot in the dark, but... maybe go to a clinic?

I might be embarrassed to do that, but maybe that's just me.

Given the choice between having glass stuck in my foot and being embarrassed about going to the clinic... I'd choose to be a little embarrassed. But if you're the kind of person who'd rather have glass stuck in your foot, well, more power to you.

Sorry, no idea what these are:

duct tape?

...and what the hell do I do with half a potato?!!! Rub it on, eat it, throw it at someone!!!

prid salve?



I wouldn't be asking for tips if it was really painful and a doctors appointment was neccesary.

It's just a really small shard, like a splinter. I'm sure there is some way to draw it out, so I can get hold of it and yank it out with the tweezers.

meat tenderizer....
I've heard that it will get a bee stinger out so maybe it will work on glass as well.
Good luck

Try the duct tape.

Duct Tape is the shiny silver really strong tape. Tape it over your heal and hope the glass sticks to it and pulls out. Here's a picture.

Do not try a half of a potato. I think that poster was confused and gave you advice on how to remove a broken light bulb from a light fixture .

Can you reach the spot..?

If you can reach the spot, I'd keep working with the tweezers if they are the type with a pointy end especially if you can see/or feel the glass with your finger. Otherwise, I'm afraid you'll have to dig it out with something sharp like the needle another poster recommended. Poor baby! Hope it comes out!

I just want to ask, are you certain it is glass? Plantar warts feel as if there is a piece of glass stuck in your foot, but of course there's no glass, just the core of the wart.

It completely depends upon how the glass is stuck and the shape of the shard, but you could try rolling a pencil toward one end of the shard to force the other end up and out a bit. Then you could grab it with the tweezers. The curved end of a bobby pin could also be used to push one end forcing the other end out. Good luck. I broke a glass door in my bathroom two years ago and every once in a while I still find a tiny piece of glass in the tile grout (or my foot).
