Testosterone injection soreness

  1. Testosterone injection soreness


    hey guys,

    first post here. I've been taking test injections on and off for six months as part of my therapy, and the last shot seems to be more painful than i can ever remember.

    I injected into the glute in roughly the same spot as always about 4 days ago. No fever, feel fine, but my glute has the golfball, redness (more like a light pink actually - about the size of the glute itself), and hot to the touch common in a bunch of other threads. And it hurts like hell to sit down on it.

    did all the proper steps: sterilize location before and after, sterilized the needle, and used a new pin.

    The question is, is this a common occurrence, and i have nothing to really stress about, or is there something more to it?


  2. Still somehow may have gotten infected. I'd get to a doc like...right now.

    If it's hot, see a doc. You may need a cortisone shot.

  4. Yeah with a legal Rx why not just play it safe.
    Back.... for real this time

  5. sounds like it's infected I would def see your doc.

  6. BTW, it is a good idea to rotate injection sites,
    Scar tissue builds up, etc.

    You could also have a sterile abscess.

    That's what the heat suggests. I'd rub cortisone on externally, and get over to a doc.

    My knots never felt hot, and they resolved in about 3-4 days. But they did hurt to touch.
