If its in to deep a doctor maybe a better option as a deep infection could set it and there is always the risk of tetnus.

It did not, and layers and layers of skin gradually grew over it. It is still there now. Pretty lucky it never got infected really!

I had a similar problem when i smacked a long spine urching (long story!) and i had about 7 spines going straight into the outside of my hand, horizontally towards the palm of my hand. Though with spines, you cant get them out with tweezers as they are hollow and all i could get near was the fragile end of the spike.
68p pot of Magnesium Sulphate paste from chemist and lots of bandages..... the spines all came ut one by one over night.

Nope!..... had my wife digging again with needle & tweezers yesterday afternoon..... I now think that it might not be a thorn, but one of these spiral snails which I scoop out of the tanks in my fishroom..... Being Diabetic, I should learn to wear sandals (or shoes) when leaving the house.....
Whats the update? Did you get it out?

Go to the doctor. My uncle lost one leg to gangrene because of diabetes, and had gangrene in the other when he died. They couldn't remove the second leg as he was too frail to withstand surgery. Admittedly he didn't take his diet seriously and was 85 when he died, but the danger is still there.
