Lead In My Skin

Last year, while messing around in English class, I managed to get a pencil stuck in the palm of my left hand. I can't remember whether or not the lead broke off into my hand, but there's a black substance under my skin in the area where the pencil was lodged. It hasn't affected my health as far as I know, but does anyone know if it would ever affect it, and if so, how much?

Re: Lead In My Skin

My mother had a lead pencil tip break off right by her elbow when she was a girl. She died at 88 and it never caused her anything except a great conversation starter....I don't think you need to worry. And it isn't lead-it's carbon so it isn't like the lead in lead paint.

Re: Lead In My Skin

Ok, thanks. I have another one from 4 years ago in my right hand too, but it's fading away now. Hopefully, the left one fades too.

Nah, it's just when I mess around with them when I get bored and/or I run with them.
