Last night, I was talking on the phone and screwing with some Rail Road ties, and managed to get 2 splinters under the fingernail of my index finger. Yes.....it hurts. I belive I got 1 out, and I had to dig for the other one useing a needle. I got most of it out, but blood started obstructing my view, so I had to stop the search for the rest of the splinter. Also, the pain was causeing my vission to be reduced. I soaked my finger in rubbing alcohol for a while, and called it good. WELL, in the past I have injured myself in just about every way, but I have never had this happen. My Mom and Dad were saying that its gonna get infected. I had a dream last night that my arm fell off. Now then.....The finger is not swollen to bad, but it hurts a little bit still. Not sure if the pain is from my wild digging into it with a needle, or because there may be a little peice of wood still in there. SO, some questions:
If there is still a peice of wood in there, will it come closer to the surface, or come out on its own?
Will it become infected and cause parts of my body to fall off?
Will I die?
