Hi ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

At the outset, I would advise you not to hide this from your parents, whose help you need at this moment and they would always be happy to help you even though might snub you a little for your benefit. So, be brave and tell them the truth. I would advise you to go with them to the local ER or to your family physician who might examine you to see the site of the needle, which could possibly be removed easily under local anaesthesia.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.

Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. I wish you an early recovery. Dr Shareef

Hi, welcome to our site. I am Dr Saumya Mittal, MD.

Read your query. That is a very significant question and i appreciate your problem. I will try my best to answer your query

Ideally I would suggest meeting a doctor. They can give you a local anesthetic and remove it. Besides bandaging may be needed if it bleeds.

If you insist on doing it yourself, remove it straight and apply a bandage to it tightly to control the bleeding.

Doing an x ray skull during the day may be advisable

I hope this helps you. Inform the reports mentioned above/if any other so I can be of help further.

I have given you the answer to the maximum considering the information provided. The results of the tests could further enhance my answer to you.

Please do understand that some details could be extracted from a detailed history and examination.

Please feel free to ask another query. I would be glad to help you. Looking forward to your return query with the details asked so that I can help you further.
(If the answer has helped you, please indicate this)
Best of luck.
