If the shards are poking out of the skin, I’d remove them with some tweezers. However, if they’re under the skin, I’d go to the doctor. I know some people would just lance it out themselves, but the last time I did that I got an infection. =/

If they’re on the surface, a good pair of needle nose tweezers and some magnification to dig them out. A strip of duct or packing tape over the area and pulling it off can help, too.

If they’re subdermal, I would probably go have a doctor remove them. If the area was not painful, I’d likely try to extract it myself (Very sharp xacto blade & some tweezers), I’ve never had a “self surgery” go infectious on me, but I do tend to go crazy with the hydrogen peroxide and neosporin.
