    Default black and blue lump @ injection site

    Should I be worried or do u think I just hit something. I used new and sterile pins everytime. Should I start amox? If so how much. Its on my pec. I usually do the slin pin but I used a 25g 1 inch and when I pull it some run out.

    Everytime a little blood runs out I use a hot soak on the injection site. I don't think you need an antibiotic. It should be all right in a few days.

    It's just a bruise. Sometimes more trauma is caused than other times when you inject. I would definitely not worry about it.

    You hit a blood vessel, it happens. When you inject, and if you aspirate, you can tell if this going happen. Did you do this when you injected? I like to massage the area after I pull the dart out. Its not going to prevent bruising if you hit a vessel, but will help with any welt.

    If it turns red around the injection site, circle the red area with a pen. You have infection if it the red expands beyond the pen.

    Even if you aspirate, you can still hit a blood vessel; it's extra insurance to aspirate but no guarantee since the needle will move around a little during a typical injection.

    Chances are that you bled internally into the muscle and, maybe, up under the skin. If that's what happened, the body will re-absorb the blood and you'll be absolutely fine. Applying pressure for a few seconds after an injection can help to minimize blood leakage when this happens.

    At this stage, you can apply heat to it but there's not much you can do besides wait for the body to break it down and carry it away.

    This last statement is NOT TRUE!!!

    Imflammation is not a sign of infection. It is a response to tissue trauma that is quite common. It is the result of serous fluid flooding the area to increase capillary blood flow, WBCs, and marcophages.
    Infection comes after the WBCs have initially failed to overwhelm any foreign bacteria. If swelling becomes significant enough it will not allow the flow of fluid into and out of the affected area. This results in an environment perfect for the bacteria to grow.
    Massage/warm compress will improve the movement of fluid.
    What to look for;
    1. Isolated hot spot too tender to touch.
    2. low grade temp.
    3. Limb loses its range of motion due to swelling.
    If any 2 of these occur, you need to see a DR right away. ER preferrably.
    When my hands meet the iron, there's an agreement made...I will free it from the earth and it will make me grow...
