My fragmin/dalterparin daily injections are leaving hard lumps up to 2 inches at injection sight they don't seem to be going for weeks. causes??

Bruise

Seem bigger than expected Check needle size, volume injected and talk with doc about possible overdosing. While a goal of anti coagulation is important, local bleeding is uncomfortable and a possible sign of need for adjustment. Ice may help earl, and heat later to limit bruise and resorb hematoma.

i had perlane injections in my cheeks three weeks ago and have hard lumps and dimpling. Will it go away eventually?

Perlane

Open-uri20130107-11925-o2t74e
Perlane is a type of filler material made of hyaluronic acid which you body will dissolve in 6-12 months. You may get some improvement by having your doctor inject a material that will help accelerate the dissolution of the product. Some downward massage can also sometimes soften lumps/bumps from filler but make sure you do not massage up toward the eyes.

Tinzaparin injections since January I have hard lumps on my belly that hurt. Some disappear quickly but two are bad! What can I do to relieve this ?

Go back to doctor

Pain
These may suggest either a local reaction to this anti-thrombotic, a low grade infection, bleeding at the injection site, or other less frequent complications. Go back and see the doctor who prescribed these, there are alternatives.

Had an IV in from the hospital they "caught" my vein and the injection site very swollen now 3 months later there are lumps higher up the vein is this?

Superficial clot.

Thrombophlebitis
Occasionally following an IV insertion, the vein can become irritated from the IV solution and form a clot. This is called superficial phlebitis and is not dangerous. The clot does not move but it is easily felt and sometimes painful. Initial treatment is a warm compress. If the clot is painful then it can be surgically removed under local anesthesia but this rarely needs to be done.

I used Levinox and now I have a mass/lump at the injection site. What does this mean and what should I do?

Is that lovenox?

Enoxaparin
it is a blood thinner given as subcutaneous injection. sometimes in doing so, it can go deeper than subQ or can hit a blood vessel and cause a hematoma (organized clot). It may or may not resolve, most do. Show it to your doctor and find out. Good luck.

Do botox injections cause lumps under the skin? I may be injected to decrease forehead creasing. I would appreciate, but not get, a smooth appearance?

No

Head-forehead
Botox injections can result in temporary bumps due to the injection. This lasts only a few minutes. Bruising, although rare, can occur.

Can I massage out bumps that form after Radiesse injections? I've heard lumps are a possible side effect after Radiesse injections. If I get them, can I massage them to smooth it out? .

Yes

Yes you can as long as it is within the first 24-36 hours. If your filler is not smooth immediately after the injection, gentle massage the area until it is. Your doctor should smooth it out immediately after the injection. If you notice lumps, get back to your doctor immediately for a post-op check.

Radiesse

Radiesse is more likely to cause lumps than other injectables and massage is encouraged.
