    If I had it, I'd get a needle and gently break the skin over it then lift it up with the tip of the needle and pull it out. You could use tweezers to grab it. That's how I've done it in the past without a problem. My mother used to sterilise the tip of the needle with a burning match but Ive never done that.

      This. The top few layers of skin will not scar if cut, so just suck it up and go for it.

    oh you need to apply alcohol to the area and then dig the splinter out with a needle. my sting a little bit but its a sure fire way of getting the splinter fro under the skin.
