    I've had painful shots and other things go wrong like shaking to much during injection and it wasn't that bad but now it's not even that painful and its red and just the red area is swelled and hot to touch hurts like a bruise and at the actually injection site where the needle actually went in its a little yellow as if bruised or could it be worse i did everything like I normally do and it was fine until I noticed this today, is it infected how do I tell for sure and if it is what do I do and how should I go about it .... Help please

    Do you wipe site with rubbing alcohol after you pin? Could just be a "leak" sometimes that will irritate it. Its the alcohol getting in the pin site.

    For some, this can last a week after they pin. Don't be worried and try not to touch it. If its there after about a week and become painful, then you have a problem. Bruising isnt uncommon either

    I have had the same thing happen a few times before , it swelled and was red, almost looked like a giant wasp bit, or heat rash that was raised a bit, mine did take a while to go down, can't remember exactly but I know it took round about a week maybe a bit longer.

    I'm switching left to right quad (vastus laterus) and its start to feel itchy I'm highly thinking its time to see a doctor and just get a antibiotic prescribed as per "first cycle " I've done oral only anadrol cycles and gotten phenomenal results but I wanted to not hurt my liver and start using test, now I'm going to grab a liver support other than milk thistle which I take normally anyways and add some anadrol in

    You should rotate between a few more; shoulders, quads, lats. It'll give areas "rest". Remember you're, in essence, stabbing yourself, areas will get irritated if your pinning that area often.

    At the very least you really should rotate 4 sites. I'd go glutes,quads. About as easy as its going to get. Your irritation isn't going away because your not giving it time to heal before the next shot. 12 days is the standard minimum between shots at the same site. Take some ibuprofen to take care of the swelling and start rotating sites.

    Common infection symptoms.

    A fever of 101+
    Redness and swelling anywhere from 7-14 days after the injection
    Sever pain (about a 7-8 on the 10 scale)
    A hard lump or swelling at the injection site (again 7-14 days later)
    Persistent swelling that continues (after a week or so if there is swelling take a pen and CAREFULLY draw around the border, watch it to see if it spreads or is actually decreasing)
    A visible abscess forms

    If you've done your research and are doing everything right. Infections are pretty rare man. The sites probably just irritated

    Ya but believe me when I say I've had the worst luck pinning, alrhough the redness has gone down the yellowish bruise has gotten bigger I'm starting to think its just the repeatative injections without moving to delts or glutes is it possible to get a skin rash for a few days after an inject ?
