Unhappy A Root in my Leg...

I was flipping rocks to see if I could find any wormsnakes. I flipped one and I wasn't sure if I saw one so I looked for a stick, but none were in my yard. So, I pulled a weak looking root out and when it came out it stabbed me in the leg and left a few splinters in there.

An hour and a half later we all gave up trying to get a splinter out and just put neosporin (or however you spell it) on it. The Dumb thing HURT while we were trying to dig it out with a needle and a pair of tweezers. Lets just hope it doesn't get infected...

Ouch!! Keep an eye on it and go to the doctor if it looks like it's getting infected.

I'm pretty sure your body will push it out on it's own. I rarely pull mine out and I get them almost everyday. :) Just keep putting neosporin on it!
