In brief: Yes !!
Yes you can...I am not going to ask how the splinter got there, but you would want to have the splinter removed.
An infection can most certainly occur and i would imagine that would not be a fun place to have one. Because of the lcoation, i would imagine it would be much easier for a doctor to remove and examine then yourself, unless of course you are very flexible or double jointed.
