Hi!
If possible go to a wound care clinic and get this sorted out. At the clinic they will remove all dead skin and probably the splinter which is acting as the source of infection. Then they will aseptically clean the wound and call you regularly for dressing. In all probability the splinter is there. You can also show this to your regular doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
