How to remove badly stripped screw?
I was using a cheap screw extractor and it only made it harder to extract. Btw this screw is inside a Baby doll, so I imagine it will be easier than removing a screw from a motorcycle or car. I can’t add a picture right now but I think the hole is drilled about 1/4 of the way in. The Baby doll screws are like 2-3 cm long
Moral of the story: invest in a nice screw extractor
More info: the place where the screws are are inside this little indented area that is deeper than the surface of the compartment thingy so there isn’t a lot of space around the screw head. Also the head is stripped beyond recognition there is no screwdriver that could unscrew it

You can try tricks like putting a rubber band over the head of the screw to help with the grip. I've found that using a needle-nosed vice grip plyers if the screw head is exposed enough is the easiest.
