Knot Injection Site
Is it normal to have hard knot around injection site for MRI contrast? Its been 3 days. How long does it last?
4 year old received Kinrix (Dtap/IPV) vaccine yesterday and has large bruise, mild swelling and hard knot at injection site - normal?
Not uncommon: These vaccines are injected into muscle which may knot up for several days after the injection. If the needle passes through a small vein during the injection it can bleed more than usual, producing the bruise. The swelling would be a response to both. It is not uncommon or considered an "allergic" response. ...Read more
Yes: It is not unusual to have swelling like this under the injection site. There could be some local bleeding and than an inflammatory reaction to the foreign substances in the body. This should go away in a fairly short time. ...Read more
I've used Depo as a BC method in the past w/ no issues. I've decided to use it again after giving birth. Why is there a knot at the injection site?
Injection site lump: The injection site for depoprovera should not be in one location. Using it for BC is safe for a few years at most, and then one should take a break for several reasons. The site of the injection should vary every three to four months when taking the depoprovera. The "lump" is not worrisome, but is due to probable scar tissue from the needle. ...Read more

Several days perhaps: A local bruise or hematoma and swelling are not uncommon near injection sites. A small vessel (vein) was likely traversed by the needle upon tissue penetration. The best indicator of resolution is decreasing pain, swelling and fading of dark discoloration from black, purple, and blue, to brown and yellow. ...Read more
Usually a few days: Most of the time, these areas last only a few days. Sometimes there is a little bleeding at the injection site and it may last longer, usually 1-2 weeks. ...Read more
I 36+hrs since my 6mo had her reg schld. Vaccines & there is still an extremely hard knot, bruise, redness, warm/ painful to touch at injection site.?
Which injection site requires the most exposure (underpants lowered the farthest or removed), ventrogluteal, or dorsogluteal?
Proper technique: I feel that the entire buttock should be exposed so that the injection can be properly administered in the upper outer quadrant of the gluteus muscle. With proper technique damage to underlying nerves is avoided. ...Read more

Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .
Juvederm can move a bit from the injection site, but not far. If you put pressure on the area you can displace it to the sides a bit and smooth it out (this can be helpful if you have lumps or bumps afterward). It does not move to other areas of the face or body because of connective tissues under the skin.
