Our two-year-old just had her first wood sliver. We were able to remove most of the wood with a pair of tweezers.
A small amount of dark matter is still visible under the skin. We would prefer not to have to make an incision to clean it out, and I'm sure she'd agree with us. (She was brave, but she was just as happy to reach the end of the tweezer session as we were.)
Is it safe to leave the remainder under the skin? Also, any advice on helping the wound to heal, and on avoiding infection, would be appreciated.
