Went to google around to see if it is ok to leave the splinter inside, only to be met with mixed answers ranging from "The body has a natural defensive mechanism to push the splinter out", to "OMG, you may get infected, go see a doctor or you will die" (ok, I exaggerated the latter a little).
I'm a little tempted to ignore the splinter, but at the end of my head, I wonder if my finger might get amputated years down the road. Haha.
Dr Stiletto: Save me, I'm dying! =p
So have you guys ever get splinters in your hand? What's the longest time that such splinters stayed within your finger?
Edit: The picture of the bloody finger is not my fingers. Just some random picture from the Internet.
