I am well aware that I.V. drug use is stupid and dangerous. So please refrain from telling me I should not do it. I do appreciate the thoughts but what's done is done.
Now for my issue. Today I prepped my shot of D's and successfully found a vein and verified it by drawing back and seeing blood enter the syringe. About halfway through the injection I felt pressure, so I checked and drew back again to see blood, and I did. So I had assumed there was no problem.
But needless to say it is not ok. I now have a painful lump on my forearm. it is swollen and red. I have had a bag of frozen peas on the site for about an hour now. I do not want this to turn to a full blown abcess.
Does anyone know of any home remedies that could help me?
Any bit of advice would mean the world to me. Thank you
