Get help!: Injecting yourself w/ anything requires training by the doctor prescribing the medication. This medication is not intended for such use and the reports by those who've tried it - you're not the only one - are pretty uniformly bad. If you've not recovered fully yet - go to an ER. Never do it again in any case. It's not a good thing. Please seek help and proper treatment. Don't make life harder. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is facial swelling and red feverish cheeks and now forehead normal after epidural steroid injection?
Yes: However this suggests you may be intolerant to the amount of steroid injected. Generally it is self limited, but if you are still swollen after a few weeks you may need a cortisol level checked. Sometimes when exogenous steroids are introduced to the body we can shut off our own supply of cortisone causing some temporary problems like the swelling and fluid retention. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Amphadase : Amphadase (hyaluronidase inj) is a preparation of purified bovine testicular hyaluronidase, a protein enzyme. Each vial contains 150 USP units of hyaluronidase per ml with 8.5 mg sodium chloride, 1 mg Edetate disodium, 0.4 mg calcium chloride, monobasic sodium phosphate buffer, and not more than 0.1 mg thimerosal (mercury derivative).

Can I apply cortizone (hydrocortisone) ointment to the injection site of a flu shot if I have pain, redness, and swelling in the area? Is that a bad idea?
Probably correct: Steroids suppress immune response & constrict local blood flow. The whole purpose of vaccines is to catch the immune systems attention to induce a strong response prior to exposure to the actual virus or bacteria. Thus suppressing local response could decrease the protective response to the vaccine. I do not think any explicit double-blind prospective controlled trials exist, too much$ for ?value. ...Read more
4 y/o vaccinated two days ago has large red swelling around the injection site (2-3 in). Getting lighter now/fading. Reaction or infection?
Reaction: The needle used and the vaccine injected are sterile and the skin is carefully cleaned before hand. Infection is rare and injection reactions are very common. The reaction is usually quite red, very round, sometimes raised & occasionally tender, but, as you've noticed, it goes away w/o treatment. Ice and acetaminophen can help with the symptoms. ...Read more
My daughter has small red bumps all over her body. Injection site of last immunization bruised, swelling with bumps in it?
Allergic reaction?: Red, raised bumps are most commonly a sign of an allergic reaction. Swelling and bruising is not unexpected at the site of any injection, however. If there are any signs of difficulty breathing or fever, then a personal evaluation would be prudent. If she is otherwise normal, observe and contact pediatrician if it does not resolve. Report the reaction to the pediatrician. ...Read more
I had hcg 5000 injection on 18dec.cycle length 33days.i had watery bright red period flow 3and 4 jan and today its only brownish.is this implantation?
HCG injection: HCG injections are usually given to stimulate ovulation, and accompany ovarian stimulation to produce mature follicles. If HCG "forces" ovulation, and you conceive, implantation would be about six to seven days from then, so what you describe is probably not implantation bleeding. It is possible, however, but accurate tests for pregnancy use HCG as a marker, so are invalid. ...Read more
