such injuries often lead to infections deep inside the inter muscular spaces.
self medication is never advised .
if not taken out timely the foreign body will cause serious infection for sure.
you must not delay your appointment with the dentist.
after carefully locating the fishbone the dentist will remove it and prescribe you medicine .
take care
