How to treat a puncture from a pencil?

my 13 year old stuck herself with a lead pencil and her index finger is swollen. How do I treat this?

Answer #1

First, it’s not lead, it’s graphite. So because it’s graphite, it’s not nearly as danerous as lead…but, if your daughter’s finger is swollen, please call the advice nurse at your local clinic or doctor.

Answer #2

I’d go to a doctor.
