I have a splinter that's stuck under my skin!?

Yesterday, I tripped on a sandy gravel area, and I got a few scrapes in my knee and my hand's skin peeled off. It was oozing out blood and pus yesterday and it just looked gross.I have a splinter in the area that's pierced inside my skin and it hurts to touch it! What do I do to get it out!?

    soak it, for 1 hour,in epsom salts, this will loosen it up and you can pull it out-if you can't get in a hot tub, use very wet moist compress (clean washcloths soaked in epsom salts. it doesn't hurt

    If it's sticking out a little bit then get some tweezers and try to pull it out. Try to get it out by soaking it in warm/hot water, or go see a doctor and he/she can remove it . Good luck !
