    Help. The glass is on the underside and apparently can't be seen. I've tried duct tape, having my bf trying with a needle and tweezers. Nothing doing.

    What else can I do? I can feel it moving towards my toes and I think it may come out that way.


    Any ideas other than cutting through my foot to get to it? I haven't ruled it out as an option yet...

    How about some white glue or rubber cement? Apply, let dry, pull off.

    I usually just dig them out with the tweezers or a knife.

    very confused here...how does grooming your feet cause you to get glass in there?

    Ugh that is the worst! I had a piece of glass in my foot for over a year once...it was teeny and I couldn't get it out...it eventually worked its way out...yuck!

    I've always just gone in with the knife if it comes down to it. My dad has really bad close-up vision (in other words he's farsighted) and he goes barefoot a lot, so I always had to "operate" on his splinters. DH is about half blind and he walked from the beach to the car one time last summer and got some glass in his foot and all I had was my pocketknife. I have lots of experience.

    I went barefoot 24/7 for a while, and at the time my feet were so tough that nothing bothered me. It's this having to wear shoes to work and then going barefoot on my day off that causes trouble.

    I was trying to pretty myself up. Freshly shaven legs (and there's ALOT of leg there), painted nails.

    I got the cheese-grater thing out for my feet. (yeah, they are that bad). I put the lotion on there with the white socks. I can only assume mine came from walking somewhere in the middle of the night. Just sad... [​IMG]

    So, I blame it on trying to be pretty. Will not happen again! Darn you cheese-grater sander-offer.

    I always just dig the glass out.... Eventually I get it but not without lots of blood and pain...

    Good luck!
