I stepped on a toothpick?

About 3 years ago while vacuuming, I stepped on a toothpick. The end must have broken off and lodged in my foot or something, because to this day, I still have a strange mark on my foot. It's raised, like a bump, and has a hole in the center that is painful to walk on or to press. I've tried using a needle to find the toothpick, but it doesn't look like there is and wood left. Help?

well this quite common it is called a deep splinter just apply pressure around it like a circle and then push on the top of your foot and if you see it use tweezers to yank it out and if you can't get it checked by a doctor

It is possible that the toothpick didn't break in your foot. The lump could be caused by a clot. I think you should go to a doctor and have it checked out before it gets worse.
