When did you do it?

Did you massage well after injecting?

Is it getting worse?

Has it got a red ring developing round it and a softening centre?

Did you massage it well after the jab? I had a similar prob a few years ago and was advised to put a hot water bottle on it and massage the area well, if that doesn't clear it up see the doc

got something like that the last cycle i did when i pinned the same area too soon after the last and i scratched myself with the needle before pinning.

the reddness got worse a spread down the lump went with a hot compress and a good massage , did end up at the hospital and asked never said that i pinned it just left that area for 2 weeks and it got better after about 7 days.

However hygeinic you are, there's always a statistical chance that as you unsheath the needle it attracts a pathogen floating in the air, or one lands just where you push it through the skin, and this is what causes an infection and possibly an abscess.

Abscesses are not caused by mechanical trauma through clumsy technique.

If your lump is hurting less as time goes on you're very unlikley to have an abscess.
