I inject drugs for more than 14 months right now. I take opiates for more than 3 years now. I never had a problem with abscesses or something like that. I always use sterile equipment, I always sterilize the injection site...
I made the mistake to inject on one injection site for MONTHS. I stopped injecting there two days ago. Today I woke up, it was a little bit swollen and it hurts when pressure is applied. It's also a little bit hot.
What to do? Seek medical help? Or can it be treated at home? I would never wright "urgent" if it wasn't, so please give me an advice!
