    Ouch!

    If the gash is big enough for stitches, you really should get to someone who can properly irrigate it and sew it up.

    It must be clean. Seriously.

    Splinters Treatment: First Aid Information for Splinters



    Try hydrogen peroxide too...in place of the baking soda to flush it out. Once you get it out (use a magnifying glass and clean tweezers) keep it clean and let it heal.

    I would be able to remove it using an 18G needle attached to a syringe and use the cutting edge of the bevel as sort of a scapel.

    However, my arms aren't long enough to reach you.

    Try soaking it and use a sterilized needle to unroof the entrance tunnel. But, you might need to seek professional assistance.

    Leave it to xotoxi to talk about a woman's 'entrance tunnel'.
