Did you have any bleeding then?Ifso get an intramuscular tetanus injection and get the piece removed with scissors or forceps after keeping it in boiling water for 5-10minutes.Along with this let me start you on T.droxyl500mg twice daily and T.Signoflam[paracetamol with serratiopeptidase]with T.Zinetac 150mg twice daily before food for 5 days.If you could not remove the piece by yourself better consult a doctor in person.
