I think you can buy magnesium sulphate from the chemist, you put it on for a few hours (under a plaster or bandage) and it draws it out of the skin. Not sure if it really works or not, but its worth a try. Try not to leave it in there too long, as infection could be a problem

tell them it will turn into a tree if you dont get it out then they will stay still

My daughter had a splinter in her finger at about 2. We took her to the local a and e, they put the magnesium sulphate on there under a bandage, we walked out, put her in the car and within 2 minutes it was off.. we left it and it gradually came out by itself. did have to watch for infection though

Bathe in warm water, then try to work the end out with a needle, followed by forceps. Alternatively you could wait until he goes to sleep then carefully remove it.

agree my son recently had 8 splinters in his hand took him to docs and this is what doc said to do
if its hard wood then they need to come out imediatly as theese cause infection,if its soft wood then they do come out by themselves with bathing in warm water,forceps and a needle

I'd stick him in the bath for an hour before bed so the skin is nice and soft, then work on it once he's asleep, should be easy to get.

I was going to suggest a soak in the bath and see if that helps
If I get a splinter I try sucking it out first or failing that sudacrem under a plaster and leave it over night and then wash and suck again!

Have you tried warm sale water! I've tried this a couple of times and it seems to work a treat, leave it to soak for a little while and then try and take the splinter out. My son is 3 and I did the same thing just over a year ago and was able to get the splinter out with tweezers after a soak! It really depends how far in the splinter is...

Good luck
