What will happen if glass goes inside the skin?
Q: What will happen if glass goes inside the skin? Actually, I opened a bottle and some small pieces of glass went inside the skin of my finger. I am not sure whether glass is in the skin or not, but I am afraid. There was bleeding but a little bit only. Please tell me if this is dangerous? Will it become septic and what is the treatment?
A:If the glass pieces enter the skin, two reactions can happen. Firstly, it can get infected, result in a painful lump and can be drained out automatically or surgically. Secondly, it may get embedded in scar tissue and stay there for ever, without causing any problems.
