YES
Expert:  Dr Brims replied 6 years ago.
There are multiple options left
1.You may pour cooking oil over the feet, or soak them in oil for some time
2.You may put duct tape on the bottom of you feet, leave it on for about 2-3 hours, and then peel it off
3.You can go to an urgent care center or emergency room , so a doctor can take them out with the appropriate instruments (I recommend this)

Hope this helps
