So heres the story: About 2 weeks ago did a 250 mg test injection into my left delt. I used good injection procedure, fresh needle and syringe, cleaned vial and injection site with alcohol and washed my hands before I did it. About 2 days after the injection I noticed a small bruise in the middle of my arm and didn’t really think much about it.
However, now 2 weeks later the area from the bottom of my delt to my elbow is really inflammed and I have swelling down to about mid forearm. For the past 4 days I’ve been using hot/ cold compresses about 3 times daily and I just started an antibiotic we had laying around the house. It seems to be getting better and worse at the same time though.
At first my bicep was crazy swollen and then yesterday my bicep was better but now my tricep became inflammed and swollen. I know its not an abscess b/c I have no lump or anything, but I’m thinking it’s some kind of infection? idk why it would have gotten infected though… Anyone else had this issue? I could use some help here. I really hope my body can fight it off ><
