$20 is worth the sanity of getting it out safely. Been there done that. Daughter believed in her pediatrician so much I think she would have let him cut her arm off w/out a thought.
She had this splinter. Wouldn't let me touch it. Wouldn't let grandparents touch it.. so.. off to the Dr.. he had it out in 1 minute.. but made a big deal of how big a girl she was.. Big bandage..lol the whole deal.
He whispered to me afterward when I was stating I could have removed it.. .. it is the "Dr" factor.. I'm trained.. lol
I gave him a hug and he lol.
It was worth the co-pay.. had to do it a few times, and worth not having to try to hold a crying screaming child.
