Last week, YX came back from school with a 'souvenir'. Until today, we do not know how he hurt himself or being hurt by friends as he can't seems to give us an answer. The teacher was unaware of how this thing happen too.When MIL went to fetch him, he complaint of pain in the hand. MIL was shocked when she saw what happened and waited for us to return from work to remove the nib.
The skin was a bit red around the injured area
We tried to removed the pencil nib with a twister, but the pencil nib kept on broken into tiny pieces because of it's powdery form. To take out the nib was not an easy job too because YX refuse to cooperate. Three persons need to press him down and he was yelling on top of his voice. After we decided to gave up, my poor boy was soaked with sweat and tears.
Flavin to prevent the infections
To avoid any infections on the injured area, I applied some Flavin and covered with plaster. I checked his condition every day and was glad that no more redness around the injured area. We suspected the pencil nib must have fallen off and left the stain under the skin. No matter how much soap we washed, the stain still remains. Since YX did not complaint of pain anymore, we just let it be. Hope he won't bring back anymore 'souvenir' from his school or anywhere else in the future.
