    Take him up to the hospital and they will remove it with numbing. Don't risk infection.

    Soooo
    Last night our financial advisor came over and during our appointment I mentioned my sons splinter (we both have young kids) and he said remove it while he is sleeping!
    So Dh and I went in with a sterilised pin, tweezers and torch light from the mobile phone. After 3 times (Ds kept moving his hand) and some gentle poking and pulling I eventually got the splinter out! I then applied some savlon and put on a bandaid.
    Thanks everyone!

    I saw you got it out already, and it was probably too big anyway, but thought I would add something.
    I haven't used that cream before, but you can make up a gluggy solution of bi-carb soda and water, put it on the splinter and cover with a bandaid for 24 hours. Draws it out.

    That is a great idea!! Will be trying that next time my child has a splinter!!

    Glad you managed to get it out without him waking up
