Herbal Remedies for Splinters
A splinter is a sliver of wood that has penetrated the skin and is lodged in the tissues. Splinters should be removed, as they can fester if left in the skin.
After careful removal with a sterilized needle or fine-pointed tweezers, splinters are best treated with antiseptic herbal preparations and herbs that speed tissue regeneration and healing .
