    I hated this but my grandmother would fitst steralize a pin by putting it through an open flame.  Then she would work the skin around the splinter with the pin.  After a while  the splinter would be able to be removed with tweezers.  If you do this, make sure you clean the skin around the splinter.  Good luck.

    Put on a band aid. In a couple of days the skin will be soft and it will come to the surface.
