Yesterday, at the beach I got a pricker in my foot...well I couldn't find it then but now when I looked...it is like under my damn skin! It hurts like hell too and I don't want an infection forming. How do I get it out?

If the skin is completely formed over it, You have to slice it out :(

Sanitize a sewing needle in some rubbing alcohol, and then pluck it out.

I tried this baking soda mix when I had a sliver of glass stuck in my foot. Basically you mix a paste, smear it on the spot, let it dry and it's supposed to bring it out completely. It didn't bring mine all the way out but brought it close enough to the surface that I was able to use a pair of tweezers to finally grab it. Fucking thing was stuck in my foot for 3 damn days and I couldn't even see it anymore! It was TINY too, I thought I was going to need a dr visit to get it out.
