Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query and the clear picture.The picture shows the puncture site as black as the necrosed tissue and a large area of cellulitis around.I would advise you the following:Consult a Doctor and get a course of an antibiotic, antihistamine and oral steroid for a a few day.Do not fondle the area.If the string is inside the wound, it may have to be removed intact.Take a injection of Tetanus toxoid.Wishing you a speedy recovery.
