Pull out or leave in?

Splinters?
My three-year-old hates when we try to get splinters out. So I usually leave them in until they work themselves out. I keep an eye out for infection but we've never had a problem.

That one took three days to work itself out.

Do you leave splinters in or pull them out?

 I always take them out (at least for myself, my son's never had one yet).

He just will not hold still! I'm afraid I'll hurt him more.

I take them out if I get one, but Chase gets so freaked out when I try.

If it's me, I take them out.

I'm impressed with how many of your kids haven't had any!

I will try to take it out but if he is moving around too much we leave it. Joshua freaks out usually. Alex hasn't had a splinter yet.

you should really take them out especially if it was pressure treated wood.
