Clinical examination required

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query

I had gone through your history and can understand your concern.

Whenever foreign body(stone/glass piece) enter in to the body, body shows immediate reactions by causing pain, swelling,abscess formation.

If the size of the stone is too small, it can enter inside the body can cause problems, you have to go to near by Doctor, preferably General Surgeon, he can examine and can take out the small stone by giving local anesthesia.

You have to take 1 dose of TT injection.
If pain is too much you can take pain killers like Tab Diclofenac /Ibubrofen.
If you have fever, you may need to start antibiotics to prevent infection.
So you need to meet doctor for further evaluation.

Take care
