Patient : My granddaughter got hold of a pencil, tripped and fell, the pencil stabbed her in the cheek right under the eye. I checked the tip of the pencil and no breakoff, but looks like it left a pencil mark under the skin. How long will it take for the mark to disappear, and is there anything I can do to help it go away.
