is there any harm if a pencil point in the skin

Three weeks back my friend got angry on me and pierced a pencil into my shoulder at that time i ignored it but now a black mark is visble there
I'm afraid that a small pencil point is inside my skin
Is there any serious problem with this

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.
