Im out camping and I stayed here for one more week than I was planning. I did my last shot with an insulin needle 8 days ago. I did not swab it afterwards. Do u think I can use it again today I I swab the needle before using it?
KS man said this a time ago:
“About reusing needles: You can swab your skin, but it is never sterile. For those with a good immune system, the effect of a new needle VS one that was used, swabbed and stored is insignificant. Note that your immune system is doing battle at your skin barrier all of the time, business as usual. Can you get an infection or inflammation from reusing your own needles? Yes, but you can get the same events from new needles as well.”
But he swapped it directly after injection I think. I did not. I just did the shot, put on the cap and now it has been there for 8 days, can I just reuse it if i swab the needle?
What do u guys think?
