I got an injection near my anus. Its been one month. The hard site of injection is still there. Why it take so long to dissolve. No pain. Hematoma I doubt.
Hematoma: I would feel that this is an organized blood clot from bleeding at the injection site. Often fibrosis sets in and the firm nodule won't dissolve even after warm applications. If these clots are painful or tender, they would have to be removed by minor surgery. A general surgeon or proctologist can evaluate it and advise you. ...Read more

An injection of any sort in most parts of your body can result in a "bruise", a small amount of internal bleeding at the injection site. It will usually go away without any problems.
I don't know what dental procedure was performed on you, but the swelling could have been from the procedure or from the injection.
I did not understand your question: are you still swollen over 2 weeks later, or 2 weeks later they told you that you were allergic to the anesthetic? Either way, to answer your initial inquiry, yes, an injection can leave a small, transient bruise. ...Read more

It is not uncommon or considered an "allergic" response. ...Read more

Don't get hurt!:
A hematoma is a "bruise". Usually caused by injury. To avoid 100% of these, is impossible. We all bang ourselves on something, we have all fallen, etc. You can
avoid injuries by caution, seat belts, protective sports gear, good warm-ups before activity, avoiding intoxicants etc. Sometimes unexplained bruising can occur due to medication effects or bleeding disorders. See a doc for this. ...Read more
