How do you know broken glass?
Correspondingly, how can you tell if a glass is broken?
Be sure you know which is the inside (or outside!) and look at the glass from the side. The force of the bullet hitting one side will break away a crater on the opposite side of the glass. The glass is tapered, from the impact surface away to a larger hope on the side opposite the impact.
In this regard, how do you know if you have glass in your foot?
Other signs and symptoms that you may need help from your doctor include:
- The splinter is causing severe pain.
- You're uncomfortable trying to remove the glass.
- You're unsuccessful in removing the glass.
- The area around the splinter shows signs of infection, such as redness, swelling, pus, or red streaks.
Warning. Broken glass and other sharps are physical hazards. Broken glass also has the potential to be a health hazard if it is contaminated with toxic chemicals, blood, or infectious substances which may enter the body through a cut or puncture.
