Splinter Removal

About this service

You might not think to call a practitioner for a splinter but it can become infected if not treated properly. If you see signs of redness, swelling or pus, or if you can’t remove the splinter completely, we can help. Our practitioners can clean it properly and determine if a tetanus booster is needed.
