I've found that almost any greasy substance will work well as a
drawing salve for slivers of most substances. I used to use only
specific drawing salves or triple antibiotic ointment, but a few times
I've been out, so I put on some regular old Vaseline. It worked
extremely well, too. It may just be that anything which restricts
oxygen to the wound will encourage antibody/pus production.
...in order that a man may be happy, it is necessary that he should
not only be capable of his work, but a good judge of his work.

A while back after dealing with a particularly recalcitrant splinter, I
got one of these
<http://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/Merchant/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=toolshop&Product_Code=MS-SPLINT.XX . The forceps are crap but the probe is excellent.
Used to use it when I was young. My folks swore by it. I don't know, I
guess it worked some of the time, it did help loosen things up.
If you've got swelling and aren't seeing the splinter, it may be time to
suck it up and visit a doctor. (No, I don't make that statement lightly, I
resist with every ounce of my being having to visit a doc, but sometimes you
just gotta do it)
There is never a situation where having more rounds is a disadvantage
