Sea Urchins in leg

A week back, I stepped on sea urchins in the sea while snorkling. At that time, the alchemist in the resort gave me an oil to apply instead of taking the thorns out. The thorns have melted in the legs but it still pains while walking. Should i take them out now or wait for the pain to away eventually?

The thorns needs to be removed. They might get infected if it stays for long. Consult a doctor at the earliest.
