Looks nice and infected to me....trouble with topical disinfecting is that more than likely you have infected the layers under the skin with whatever tool you used to get the object out. Hopefully it doesn't spread anymore than it appears to have spread from the pics.

I dont like the doc either man, 2 weeks ago I had to go to the emergency room, because my left eye was not working normally(by which I mean it was blurry and I was seeing a light in the top left corner of my left eye only.), and I was feeling odd. Like a little wobbly, not quite faint, but not my normal solid self.
Turns out I had very high blood pressure, now I drink less, smoke less, and take an aspirin in the morning.
I did not even realize how bad I was feeling for how long, until this week. O honestly feel better than I have for about a year. I would never have known if I hadnt gone to the doc.
Point is, they get paid the big bucks for a reason.
Ask around, find a doc you know has a good rep, and make an appointment. It cant hurt, if you dont like what he says get another oppinion.
(This is off topic for a reason, to give "oblvion" a bit of medical advice he seems to need.)
I'm not a doctor, but I know enough about high blood pressure that an aspirin a day is not a fixall. If your BP is that high (over 130 in the states) that is where treatment with meds starts, then you need meds not an aspirin. They are usually very cheap. The aspirin is to help ease the possibility of a stroke or heart attack brought on by the high BP, not a remedy for it.

So you think you did ok, but you also think it's odd that rubbing alcohol did not produce the expected nerve-related sensation?
