    You could try digging it out with a needle.

    You could try numbing it with ice before trying to get it out?

    Put a bandaid over it when he's asleep - it'll probably get a small infection and bursting that should push the glass out.

    Good Luck

    What about a drawing cream? (like used in boils and things)

    My DS had a really deep splinter and also wouldn't let me near it, we used this cream and it was able to be popped out the next afternoon. It could work for glass too

    Good luck

    Try Magnaplasm. You just get it from the chemist. Put a bit on, cover with a bandaid and it should be out within 24 hrs. Failing that, you could try some numbing cream- Emla or something? FAiling THAT I'd give the GP a ring.

    mum swears that if you DONT have drawing cream and need something immediately .. mix soap and sugar into a sludge and apply, then cover - apparently it does the same thing???

    it has worked for us previously for splinters probably cheaper then drawing cream too ..

    amazing what our relatives know ... how they fixed things when they had to (before chemists were open all hours and easier to get to .. lol)
