Basically I hit in a vein that had been working for me all day, my veins are shit so its nice to find one that works. Anyway, as I was pushing in my shot dark purple started forming around the injection area and then turned into splotches all around the area on my forearm. When I realized what was happening I quickly untied and then the purple area started swelling and turning kind of white. I don't think its an artery because my whole arm isn't swollen and it didn't really hurt pushing in. And I wasn't missing either. I don't know what happened. My arm is still numb and swollen and its been like a half hour or more. Please help. I can't find anything online.

Is it the same shit you've been shooting all day?
I have shitty veins too and use the same spot everytime. Maybe it's is an allergic reaction?

I'm not sure... Its the same stuff I always have. Hasn't changed. That's the weird thing, like I did nothing different. I don't feel anything and my arm is still numb.

The back of my forearm, few inches away from my elbow. Are there a lot of nerves in that area?

It sounds like you may have pushed through the vein and it leaked a little, which results in a histamine reaction(purple and white raised blotches), and the numbness could be caused by histamine intolerance. Look up the symptoms and see if it fits...

Maybe? I have no idea. I just don't get why I have this big purple blotchy spot where I hit. Like it's huge. Idk how to attach photos from my phone on here I wish I could show you

That kinda makes sense I'll look it up. The last few times I hit I had little white bumps around the vein but nothin like this. Maybe it just finally leaked out majorly. Idk.

Try taking a benadryl or applying benadryl cream, my guess is that it will resolve...if it doesn't, then I would be concerned.

sounds more like the dreaded artery shot, histamine reactions were never even close to purple for me

The last time I read a question like this, the guy unfortunately ended up losing his arm.
If it's not better yet , go to hospital.

I was worried about the hospital and my parents finding out . If ur 18+ go to the fucking hospital they deal with abbesses from heroin 10x a day it's nothing for them , drive through incision and draining you'll be fine they injected lytocain and cut it drained it gave me clonodine and zofran to quit opiates and sent me home took 1 hour from when I entered and left but I do live in a small city . I kept delaying it and pretending it was a spider bite to my parents and if I kept waiting , well I'd be typing one handed right now
