    Funny someone mentioned about bra splinters! I would come home with a bra stuffed full of a lovely plethera of hairs! The one splinter Idid get was in this region as well...and NOT a nice thing to get! After that I wore a spandex type tank over my bra and under my shirt and this helped immensely.

      Groomers!!! Get a magnifying mirror and take a good look in the day light. After 15 yrs of grooming, I discovered an unbeliable amount of hair splinters stuck in my face. Yes I have had them in my fingers and they hurt and I got them out. It's not too bad when you feel them, you take them out. But.....when you don't feel them, they actually travel underneath a layer of skin. I saw a skin specialist about this because I am constantly picking at my face getting them out. Be aware that the picking can become an obsession! So the doc prescribed me some exfoliating cream, works amazingly and she suggested I get "Chemical Peels" once a month. I am now waiting for my appointment to do the peel. When I realized about this problem I started paying attention on how I place myself to do my work and I realized I actually lean over the dog laying my face on the back of the dog to cut the back nails for the dogs that don't like nail cutting. Wow, I was scraping my face into their coat and welcoming a whole wack of splinters. I change the way I did that real quick. I tried to wear a mask, too hot! I guess it comes with the work and it's now a part of my life to get them out daily.

        I have a big black hair underneath my nail right in the centre! No clue how it got up so far without hurting at all, but theres absolutely no way to get the thing out!

        Hoping and praying it doesnt somehow get infected.... :S

          I also get horrible splinters in between two fingers on my right hand...looks like some awful disesase! Sometimes i will wear a latex glove with the fingertips cut off so i can still feel the dog. That way the hair cannot fly in between my fingers. Also just bought a clipper vac so I'm hoping that will help!

They're pretty cheap in the athletics department of department stores, and are incredibly comfortable. They can't be seen beneath my regular shirts, and keep me clean and comfortable in all weather. I highly suggest them.
            Great advice! And they make you look sporty! LOL!

              Are you kidding me??? You must have air conditioning or at the very least, adequate ventilation. I have neither. Not even 15C out there and I'm already sweating in the shop by 10 am. And no, we don't use heat to dry the dogs, only air. But three groomers, 4 to 6 dogs at a time, lots of moist damp air... well, you can see why I wouldn't want to wear even more clothing.
