Splinter Removal from Board-Certified Providers You Can Trust in Hammonton, NJ
AtlantiCare Urgent Care offers splinter removal services at our location in Hammonton, New Jersey, and throughout the area. A splinter is a foreign body that has been embedded in the skin, and it can be a piece of wood, metal, plastic, or glass. Often, splinters cause mild to moderate pain and discomfort, and they can be easily removed at home using tweezers. If a splinter is fully embedded in the skin, a needle that has been cleaned with rubbing alcohol can be used to partially dislodge the splinter.
In some cases, however, splinter removal requires the help of a medical provider. In these scenarios, you can stop by AtlantiCare in Hammonton, NJ. You’ll be seen by a board-certified provider who will remove the splinter and ensure the area is not infected. You should also come to an urgent care clinic if the splinter is lodged underneath a nail or breaks when you’re trying to remove it. In addition, if you’re experiencing any signs of infection, such as swelling, redness, or discharge, it’s vital to come to AtlantiCare for splinter removal, so we can take care of the infection.
