Wipe the surrounding skin with rubbing alcohol to prevent spread of bacteria there. If surrounding redness,swelling,fever,chills or continuing draining of pus occurs, see your physician for treatment. ...Read more

When she goes for her next blood draw, have her hold pressure on the vein for at least 10 minutes after the blood draw to help prevent this from happening again. ...Read more
