Which Splinter Removal Remedy to use IF you CANNOT use Silicea (due to implants) ??? ++++Hi :)
I need some guidance in which remedy to use to help get a deeply embedded splinter (could be glass or wood) from the sole of my right foot (outer edge side of arch). I CANNOT use SILICEA, as I have breast implants, and have been told not to use that remedy. Is there a different remedy I can use to help push this splinter to the surface? It is beneath a small, round callous that it formed.
My husband broke a glass on our wood floor. I thought I vacuumed thoroughly, but either a tiny piece of glass, or perhaps a wood splinter got in my foot. I did also get a piece of glass in that same foot when he broke the glass....the splinter was visible at the surface in the ball of my foot...below toe area. That one hurt, and I immediately knew it was a splinter. I was able to remove that one with tweezers. This one, in my arch, I did not feel at all when I got it --perhaps due to more pain coming from the other one? A few days later, I noticed what felt as if I was walking on a tiny pebble. When I felt the sole of my foot, I felt a small callous there. It was about the size of a no.2 pencil head eraser. It hurts only slightly, and only when stepping on it in a certain way as to directly push the callous inward...if I am barefoot. I feel no pain while walking in shoes.
I have increased my dose of probiotics. I have tried topical drawing salves, but as the splinter has formed a callous, the salves are not working too well. It has slightly come to a head....but only very slightly. I cannot see or feel the splinter as of yet, at the surface.
I am going to try soaking my foot in epsom salt today. I only noticed the callous about 4 days ago. The glass broke on the floor approx one week ago.
Please help me by suggesting a remedy (potency and frequency of dose) that will help to push this splinter out....YET not pose any danger to my breast implants. I do not want to get an infection in my foot by having the splinter remain. I do NOT feel as if there is an infection -- but I want to prevent one. We do not have health insurance and getting to the podiatrist to have the splinter removed right now is not financially feasible at this time.
Thank you for any recommendations.

nawazkhan on 2017-06-17This thread continues beneath the following ad.Hi nawazkhan
Thanks for your reply, but OMG. ALL this info is needed for just ONE little splinter?? Wow. Ok. I will try to answer later this evening when I have more time to concentrate. My 94 yo mom pulled a back miscle, and I am taking care of her right now. I will try to amswer your questions once she takes a nap.
I am not sure how to answer some of these questions. Others, seem easy. I will try my best, but I may ask for clarification. I have tried to find my constitutional type in the past, but I have a question:
When describing one's personality, is it about how we are now, at present? Or, how we used to be, or feel our true self to be --- if life's events had not warped our true self?
I ask because I feel one's life situation and experiences can caise one to change and become something they wish they were not---- but if circimstances were different, they could be their true self.
Example (not my case).
Maybe someone was very trusting and naive and open and loving and trusting and kind. Something BAD happened to them later in life, and now they are very angry, suspicious, cynical, and uptigjt. But deep down they wish they could trust again. How should this person describe themselves? As they feel they truly are deep down? OR as life events have caused them to be?
Do I describe myself as I am now, due to circimstances that I had no control over? Or do I describe myself as how I feel I would truly still be, had certain events not happened to me?
