Ugh that sucks!!! I agree, you have a piece left in there. You have 2 choices – go to the ER and let them dig it out (not fun at all!), or keep it medicated with a bandage and hope it works its way out.

I had this happen to me once before, but luckily my mom is a nurse and was able to numb me and get it out with minimal pain. If you do go to the ER, make sure they give you a numbing shot before they go digging around in there! My derm does this every time I get moles removed, and I can’t feel a thing

I’ve done this, but luckily my dad is a foot doctor so he was able to get it out for me. Since it’s a weekend you probably can’t see a podiatrist, I would try to see someone b/c if you leave it in there it could get infected.

@artbee: I thought about it, and totally agree its probably best to get it looked at, especially if there is a chance that the oil could have been on it…
