white glue is suppose to help get them out. Or a needle dipped in alcohol, just don't let her see the needle! Maybe a credit card, like for a bee sting??

lak394  Yes you can use tape, duck tape . This will pull it up and you should be able to get it out

if you are going to use a needle make sure you sterilize it first.
