Violin Pegs

one of my violin pegs are stuck?

my violin pegs were extremly loose and wouldnt stay. i had to put on peg drops. on 3 of the pegs it worked perfectly, on the a string is now stuck. its been almost 24 hours and its still not coming loose. how do i get it to loosen, its not moving AT ALL. how long do the effects of peg drops last

This is why I don't recommend peg drops, they contain alcohol and rosin, both of which don't belong on pegs. The alcohol gets into the wood and swells it and the rosin adheres to both things and seizes it up. Whatever you do, do not use force as you can break the scroll off of your instrument.
This may only be able to be fixed at a violin shop. This is what they will do, you can try it if you think that you can without harming the instrument. They will take a small dowel that is smaller than the small end of the peg. They will position the dowel on the end of the small end of the peg. With a lightweight hammer, they will tap the end of the peg. This "pops" the peg loose from the grip of the rosin so that you can remove it.
Once you get the peg free, clean them all off with a cloth or better yet very fine steel wool. Get yourself some peg compound or Lava bar soap and put it on the pegs. I have used Lava soap for 35 years on my Joseph Hel $40,000 violin without any problems, some people don't recommend the Lava but I have never seen a problem. If the pegs fit properly either will work, if the pegs don't fit properly then they may still slip and you will need to get the pegs adjusted or replaced.
