Painless Splinter Removal

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Even though your kids may be done teething, hang onto that little tube of Orajel! Our kids are a little skittish when it comes to having me remove splinters, and the Orajel has come in handy on many occasions lately.

Put a little bit around the area where the splinter is and it will help 'numb' the area so you can work on getting the splinter out with minimal pain for your kids!


Just wanted to pass along a little something that is Working for Me!

  2. Huh! who'da thunk it? YOU! ;) Thanks for sharing - I'll have to keep this in mind. My 4 yr old has had 2 splinters - can we say freak out!? I think he's more afraid of the tweezers coming at him than anything, but maybe if we can distract him with this 'majic' gel he'll settle down to just get it over with. HA!

  5. Wow great idea! Never though of that! I should pass that along to the camp I used to work at. We did a lot of splinter removal there it seemed. We would use ice to try an numb it a bit, but this is a much better idea!

  15. I wonder if it will work on my husband, too. He is kind of a weinie when it comes to splinter removal. You'd think that I was removing a log from his hand.

    Great tip!
