What is the best way to go about removing a rose thorn from my finger?


Answer by  snowsticks4lyfe (17)

Submerge the affected digit in warm water for a couple of minutes. If the thorn has surfaced enough, use tweezers to extract the thorn. If it has not surfaced enough possibly try applying a layer of elmers glue to the finger. Once dry, peel off the glue.

I have never had a problem with just pulling it straight out with my fingers. If you need to, grab a tweezers and pull straight out.

Get a needle and tweezers. Push the thorn from the opposite way, towards the opening in your skin where it punctured the skin. Squeeze the skin to help push the thorn to the top and use the tweezers to grab and pull it out.

Put your finger in a bowl of warm water. After a few minutes the skin will soften and the thorn should then surface, at which stage you can use tweezers to remove it.

Soak your finger in a weak solution of warm soapy water to loosen the skin a bit. Then scrape the finger with a credit card in the opposite direction the thorn entered until you can grasp it with your fingers or a tweezers.

The first thing to do is soak your hand in warm water. It will soften your skin so that it will come out easier. Then, use a needle to pull back the skin and reveal the thorn. Just like a splinter!

The best way to remove a rose thorn from your finger would be to use tweezers. You might need to squees the skin around the thorn if it is lodged under the first couple of layers of skin. You might also want to try to numb the area with ice.

I would use tweezers to take out a rose thorn from my fingers. You can do it yourself or have somebody do it for you.
