"Help..I have glass in my foot"
 
   Hi, well...I broke a glass in the kitchen and stepped on a shard... and now I have a chunk of glass in my toe (dumb-dumb that I am). It does not hurt, I tried to get it out with twisters, its just in there? What to do? I really do not want to go to the ER. Any advice to get it out???

Love and Hope...Sally

   Yikes, honey! And you've posted this in the worst folder--no one will see it!

I don't know what advice to give you...

Would dousing it with Hydrogen Peroxide make it come out with the bubbles?

Does your health insurance have any sort of a Call-a-nurse thing where you can talk to someone 24/7 for advice?

I would be afraid to leave it in, but maybe overnight would be OK, then you could go to the doc/ER/urgent care first thing in the AM?

Maybe try reposting this in Support (the very first folder on the list) or in Off Topics (very bottom folder).

Good luck!

C.

Don't need an emergency room. Any physician will do. Go to an urgent-care clinic or just call your regular doc and beg to get in.

I think the name of this forum may be confusing. I think the "support" part is intended to be part of a two-word compound but with the slash mark it makes it look like it's a dual-purpose forum. As was noted in the previous response, there is a separate board specifically for support.

   Guywire has a point, but I'm still puzzled as to why someone would go to a HERPES message board and ask for advice on glass in the foot. It seems ...not very efficient.
