Lump That Appears After Being Pricked By A Thorn?

Last night, my finger was pricked by salted fish bones while I was washing, I immediately pulled it out, but then the pain was still felt until the next day, and there was a small lump in the puncture mark, I don’t know if there were any bones left or not, if it’s true how how do I get it out if it can come out alone? Thank you for the opportunity

Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com

Lumps that appear after being pricked by a thorn, probably indicate an inflammatory condition due to a puncture wound. Lumps accompanied by the presence of pus indicate an infection in the puncture wound. If this happens, you should check with your doctor to be confirmed through a direct physical examination of the presence or absence of infection. Besides that, the doctor will also check whether thorns are left or not, so they can be taken immediately.

However, the lump may also be unrelated to the wound, such as:


Ganglion cyst
Lipoma
Boils
etc.
So, it's good to check with your doctor to make sure.

As for what you should do:

Avoid squeezing or trying to remove the contents of the lump
Wash hands before touching the bump area
Consumption of foods containing lots of protein such as egg whites and fish to speed healing
If you feel pain, you can help reduce pain by taking over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol


That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
