Yes and no: Injection site reactions are common. Warm compresses ANS analgesics can be helpful. If this site is more red or painful than usually, you should have your doctor examine the area to ensure it nothing more serious such as an abscess or cellulitis.

Blood work: Your doctor should be checking for viral hepatitis as well as other causes of liver disease. Most causes can be identified with blood work and imaging, but sometimes a biopsy is needed to make the diagnosis. A biopsy can also provide additional information in terms of the severity of the disease which cannot always be provided from blood testing.
