Hello,
Any foreign body which is lodged in the body can give rise to infection and hence complications like pus, discharge, redness and fever. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated. Any lodged foreign body has to be taken out and then topical and oral antibiotics needed.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
