Hi Dr Bob,
My 19 month old recently got a splinter in his foot from a wood deck in one of his toes. I think the tip off it broke off I think so the remaining part is very small (can barely see it) and hard to get out as it is under his skin at this point. My husband suggested it work it's way out so I gave it a break but upon reading more, I think I just need to get it out. I was wondering if you think he is at any increased risk for tetanus because of a splinter and because it has been in there for 2 days now?
Thanks so much
