    I did alot of research about fiberglass removal and there was the tape method...but I saw somewhere that said to wash your skin with hair conditioner and let it sit for a few minutes then wash it off with warm water, then wash off again with cold water.

    Keep in mind I had a ton of fiberglass in my skin because I was waxing a boat and it did help alot because the glass was embedded all over my arms and face. But I have no idea if it'll work for just one piece of glass.

    Have you ever messed with callouses on the bottom of your feet by trying to buffer them out of use clippers to cut them off?

    When I was younger I used a pair of clippers to cut off a callous on the bottom of my foot. It still leaves a pain if I walk around barefoot or my feet are too cold. Apparently this is quite common as I read a warning in a health and fitness book about why you shouldn't do this. Whoops

    Sorry!

    I had this same problem a long time ago in the center of my foot and I had it for a long time. I couldn't walk around without shoes on and it felt like a needle every step I took. I ended up going to the doctor, and they had to give a numbing shot and dug into my foot. They ended up finding a few tiny pieces of glass, so that might be what it was. And I didn't remember even seeing broken glass, let alone stepping on it, but anything is possible! Sorry if I'm scaring you, but I saw your comment because I'm expierencing the same thing again. The numbing shot in the bottom of your foot does hurt, the most out of every part of your body I think, but every bodies pain tolerance is different. My mom says it's the worst place to get a shot, as well. Good luck

    I just found this thread cause the same exact thing as the OP happened to me just now. The tape didn't work for me but my mom suggested I run my foot under a strong stream of water (in the tub) and that fixed it. I don't know if whatever was there got out, but it doesn't hurt anymore. Occasionally I'm randomly feeling a little pain there, but it's not the sharp pain that made it so I couldn't walk. Go mom! I'm 41 by the way lol!

    Oh, it is. I can get shots anywhere, but the bottom of the foot is horrible. No earthly reason why it should hurt that bad.
