  • Splinter from pressure treated 2 x 4! Gulp!

    Do I recall a thread regarding drastic consequences of getting a splinter from pressure treated wood? Well I just got one in the web between my thumb and pointer finger.

    I was able to pull it all the way out. I squeezed it to make it bleed as much as I could then rinsed it in hydrogen peroxide. I sure hope that is all there is to it.

    No it will not do.
    You must pressure treat your finger
    Make sure the plug is in

      Too late! Your arm will turn green and start to dry out causing warpage. The only known cure is to head to Home Depot for a bottle of Pressure Treated Wood Splinter Pressure Reliever. If that doesn't work, jam a splinter in your big toe...you'll forget all about the one in your hand. Not to worry WiseOne, you are probably referring to when it had arsenic in the treatment. I think now they are required to use zinc oxide or something like that. I get them all the time. You will live!!!

        On the plus side, your finger will never rot now that it is "Wolmanized".
        Seriously, just keep it clean and you should have no problem, I've had a million "Treated" splinters (old stuff, new stuff it didn't matter) and I've never had a problem.

            The still give arsenic to old horses and skinny people to make then hungry and gain weight.

            Any sudden cravings for pizza? Oh wait..that is from another drug.

            At least you will be well preserved!

            The big question that is on everybodys mind is not if you will survive, not if you are in pain, not if your medical bills will be covered, but was it working on a boat????

            Speedy recovery.

              Unfortunately it was not, it was rebuilding a rotten side yard gate to the boat yard.

              Thanks all! Glad to hear that I will live to be able to poke someone else on this forum.

                OMG! Run don't walk to the nearest emergency room where they will put you into a chemically induced coma until a cure can be found. No time to waste!

                  You laugh Mark, but I know I heard somewhere that someone got a splinter from pressure treated wood and their ???? swelled up like a balloon....and no, I did not read it in the National Inquirerer.

                    Have fun on all our accounts. Most of our oxen have been gored so many times it is impossible to get them to turn! The more scarred they are the more they seem to laugh.

                    Pop always told me no to take life too seriously. I'm counting on you now to remind me of that!

                      The bad news is your digit will swell and get very sore, the good news is it's just from the bacterial infection and a few days later it will be back to normal.

                        Now, the smell of that fester (you can't smell it) will draw wombat babies.
                        That' not good for your yard, or the neighborhood. Hell, that's not good for anybody.
                        Or am I thinking about a Dingo?

                          and diesel fuel for jellyfish stings

                              My mom would have put Vicks Vapo-Rub on it... or Campho-phenique (sp?). and then the next day a dose of Castoria.
