    I wouldn't like to say whether its infected or not, doesn't look great and when you do something like this that breaks the skin it can be very dangerous because the blood can become infected leading to sepsis, i don't know why you have followed this route but i don't think it is a good idea, please get it checked out by someone who can decide if you need something to put on it or even antibiotics.

    You really need to talk to your parents or possibly a teacher, let me know how you get on

      Hi Alisha, I agree with Alexandria lovely. You do need to talk to someone who can help you. I'm not medically qualified, but I am a mum. If my daughter had something like that I would take her to the Dr's just in case it was infected. You may well need antibiotics love, I know infections can be dangerous if left untreated, it can get quite complicated, leading to sepsis and other serious complications. PLEASE talk to your mum or dad, if you feel you cannot talk to them, what about a teacher, or a friends mum. Hope this helps, let us know how you get on lovely xxx

      That's brilliant and I hope you have realised that it's not a good idea to inflict this sort of damage to your skin, it obviously worried you so glad it.has healed and you can move on, have a happy healthy new year
