    Possible infection, help?

    So I wake up this morning, look in the mirror and I have a little bit of redness around the tricep area (where I pinned sunday) of where I injected, it's a little warm to touch, and soar just like pip. I'm just gone onto my second week of my second cycle and I dunno what to do. I dunno how this is possible because I always use sterile injection techniques :/

    Any help is much appreciated guys, thanks.

    I almost always get this in my left tri and never in my right. The redness will sometime spread to the bottom of my bi, it takes about three days to dissapate. IDK why this happens, prob too much oil and the body's natty defenses kick in. Keep an eye on it in case it gets worse ie; fever.

    This sounds like some relief, I'm on the third day since injection now, or do you mean the third day since seeing the redness? It's just like a little circle of red about and inch to and inch & a half in diameter. It's not that painful, it's just like serious pip, also there is a little bit of swelling, nothing too much, just the lateral head looks a little bigger kind of :/


    How serious is this brahs and how early do i need to catch it before it seriously fucks me up?

    One more thing, if I do need to go to the doctor and get antibiotics will i need to come off my gear? I'm a week into it already

    Cephalexin 500mg is what you should have on hand. If the spot grows/spreads radially outward, if you see a skip lesion, run a fever, the color is dark red or almost purplish, very swollen, tender and hot to the touch take the antibiotic twice a day for 10 days with ibuprofen. By 3 days if you do not see improvement seek medical attention ASAP!

    However if you are just not sure about it you should just go to the doctor.

    Well I've just booked an appointment or the doctor tomorrow morning, its not purple, its just red. I know the doctor is going to tell me to come off the gear most likely, but if I am taking antibiotics will it be neccassary to come off, like the antis won't work or something or can i stay on because im on my second week of cycle and will have to order my pct etc if i do :/

    thnks for the help brahs

    Antibiotics will not be impacted by anabolics. A few weeks back I had cellulitis in my ankle. Prescribed a course of Cephalexin and it went away. I am on TRT.

    Do you guys agree with this article on an infection?

    Should I start to try drain it myself?

    TESTOSTERONE NATION | Injection Pain: What to Know, What to Do! - Page 1

    "So, back to the beginning, if it is the 3rd day, and you are beginning to develop the symptoms I discussed �?? the pitting edema, and the swelling and pain along with HEAT at the site of injection that is not subsiding, then you pretty much can surmise that you have yourself an abscess. " ??

    So basically i have an abscess?

    Absolutley do not attempt that. You are not even sure yet exactly what the problem is. You may have an infection, or it may be that the oil did not deposit deep enough into muscle tissue.

    Just wait to see what the doctor says.

    Ok gotcha bud, I'll be in the doctors in 14 hours anyway, how worse could it get?

    It's only day 3 since the injection could it get so bad that I need to get cut open in 4 days?

    Sounds like you missed on your injection. I had something similar happen to me with my left quad. Felt like the oil moved up to the SubQ and down my leg to my lower quad. It was horrible, I was gimping all over the place for a few days. Then it went away. Area was "swollen" and tender, but manageable when trying to message it out. Went away in a few days like Tommygunz stated...

    I had this a few weeks back on both tri's. Stayed red/painful for 4-5 days then went away on its own. Guess I didn't pin deep enough.

    Thats good to hear (on my part, not yours).

    Made me feel a little better, will the doc be able to tell that its not an infection as opposed to it is?
