Patient : I have a splinter in my big toe that feels extremely painful whenever I tried to walk on it, like I've stepped on probably a piece of glass, but when I took a closer look at it and when I used a magnifying glass, I couldn't see anything. Now that it has been almost 2 months later, I feel and see a slightly large bump and the consistant extreme pain is still there whenever I try to walk on it as well. I'm too scared to get whatever the splinter is, to be takened out by a medical professional as I'm a Agliophobic!!! What should I do in order for me to get this splinter out?!
