If you have a pencil lead in your hand, is it harmful?
I have this pencil lead that has been stuck in my pinky for a couple of years. I was wondering if it affects people in a strange way

no it is graphite dumbutt!

No....but maybe you should take it out, but what does my opinion matter right?

I don't think so. There not really made out of lead so don't worry about that. I've had some stuck in my leg for a few years too:)

The 'lead' in a pencil is actually graphite, not lead. It won't hurt you unless you get an infection around the site. If it's been there for a couple of years, I wouldn't worry too much about it. The lead that is dangerous with some pencils is in the paint they use on the outside of the wood. Most pencil manufacturers no longer use lead paint but there are still some coming in from other countries where there are no inspections. So, don't chew on your pencils.

Don't blame your weirdness on lead, because it's not lead, it's graphite.

By the way, graphite stays.. i have some myself, it's been there for 10 years.

i dont think it would affect you in any strange ways, except maybe having 'an uncomfortable sensation' in your pinky. you probably wont die of lead poisoning either...
just to be sure, ask a doctor

Yup, just graphite (carbon), clay, and kaolin.

Why didn't you get it out by now?

I have a little tiny piece of graphite in my stomache. You can still see it. The piece of graphite broke when it was accidentally pushed in, and I cleaned it out, but I didn't get a little piece out. This happeded about 6 years ago. I have had a doctor check it for infections. He said it was fine.

a couple of years you say, and you've not noticed anything strange

Im not a doctor, but I know most pencil lead is actually made from graphite, not lead. Graphite (carbon) is pretty harmless and will not give you lead poisoning or anything. If you are worried about it, I would ask the doctor about it next time you go in, just to make sure.

not usually

the newer pencils these days don't


its not lead, but I have had some in my knee for about 15 years

got one stuck in my palm, never affected me. Had some metal air gun pellets removed though.

Not that I know of.. my brothers both have stuff stuck in them since they were kids and they seem ok... both are in their 40s now.
It's not really lead by the way, it's graphite.

I've stabbed myself with pencil lead tons of times. It doesn't do anything. It's graphite. Graphite doesn't do anything, Geezus. I mean you shouldn't go around trying to stab yourself with pencils, but if you should fall on, then, it WILL be okay!

I've had the lead of a pencil stuck in my hand since I was 8 (I'm 25 now) and I haven't had any problems, and by the way it is graphite not lead.

No, I have that too. It's just a mark from the pencil. And pencils have graphite not lead so it isn't harmful. I got stabbed with a pencil and got it out but it just leaves a mark.
