Just a tad bit callous, don't ya think, Mr. Gerardd? Hmm. Makes me wonder how old YOU are? We're on here to help, not put down.

I honestly hardly feel anything trying to get a splinter out. We tried to get it out with a needle earlier and I didn't really feel much of anything. I mean, I knew what was going on, and could feel it, but it wasn't what I'd call painful. I'll see if my grandfather will help get it out with one of his knives tomorrow or something. :P

They will eventually go away somehow (maybe grow out as you shed skin). Most people remove them with tweezers.

I have had some under my skin that eventually worked their way out, but I can't rightly say if yours will or not

They will most likely get infected and come out when the pus drains.

Well, possibly. You might get some sort of infection, so there's a chance you should at least try pulling it out.
Most likely it'll do some sort of maneuver to disappear, I guess.

Hey, Weather. SOMETIMES, they might make their up towards the top to where they're easier to get. (And I don't mean to say anyone's not telling the truth here), but I've never seen any that actually work themselves out. What I've always done was sterilize a straight pin (or safety pin) and tried to pull back some of the skin, then put some peroxide on it. If they're really deep, you may have to do this for several days. The peroxide helps to "boil" them up to where you can get to them with tweezers and lift them out. That's the way my family's done it for generations. Of course, it goes without saying, don't dig too deep into the skin. Just make really sure you're right over the splinter. But if you don't get them out, they can actually cause an infection and then you'll have to go to the doctor, get antibiotics, etc.

Soak whatever part of your body has them in soapy water, like a bubble barber for example, and it will loosen them up a bit. I wouldn't worry about infection unless the wood they came from was rotting or had someone else's blood on it or something.
