She went on to claim that the suction removes "splinters, tiny shards of glass and bee sting venom in a quick, non-invasive, painless way."

The mum added: "Simply place the outer tube hole over the wound site, press firmly against the skin, then pull the inside orange tube out really quickly.

"The vacuum in the tube should extract the offending item.
