    Infection?

    I just pinned my 5th time last night (glute). Its now very swollen. Would it be possible to have a bad mixture if I havent had a problem with it until week 3? Strength gains started this week, and obviously put on size already despite on a caloric deficit. 500mg test enthanate... 250 Sunday and 250 Weds. Ideas?

    Second time pinning left. Pinned right three times. I searched the forum and actually saw s2h's comments on an earlier post about ib profun and ice....also dont rub it. So going that route. I have antibiotics in case. But wanted to make sure. Thanks fellas

    Agreed. If I had $1 for the injections that brought pain, and swelling, I'd be quite happy. OP went through a nerve IMO. Happens to me about every 10 injections.

    Either that or still a virgin-ish muscle lol. Not quite a virgin but still no slut. I treat my glutes like sluts, about the only place I pin.

    treat with ibuprofen and hot then cold compress 4-5 times ed...i wouldn't jump on antibiotics just yet...if you pinned the same gear 4 times already and had no issues then its either a minor sterile issue or just some oil sitting between the fascia and skin...

    do not massage..(repeat)

    I have another injection tonight. I was thinking of scrapping the vial I have and starting with a new one. I am afraid the top of the vial I have open has bacteria on it...and thats why it all happened.

    Thoughts...

    Its also light pink now and looks like its gotten a little larger. Swellinf has went down a bit, i guess due to ib profun. Its got a mild amount of heat to it. Is it ok to take amoxcillian while on cycle?

    Wipe the top of the vial with an alcohol swab every time prior to inserting needle. And yes you can take amoxcilin on cycle if you are not allergic but im not sure its necessary. Try icing it another day or so and keep taking the ibuprofen or alleve as needed. If it were cellulitis it would usu be much worse by now.
