What it means is the microstructural architecture of your arm (the lymph channels) are affected and there could be microscopic (or macroscopic) scarring there. Definitely I want that IV out-pick another site ASAP. Arm swelling makes it urgent ...Read more

If you keep picking at it, it will continue to be irritated and be more noticeable. Best thing is to leave it alone so it can heal. ...Read more
