    As long as everything starts to go down, as the lump has, it's likely not infected.....just keep an eye on it and your temp....and taking the antibiotics if not needed does more harm than good in the long run....that's how we get resistant bugs. The tissue is just traumatized most likely.

    where you a little nervous? i know when i first started (dont know how long you have been poking) i used to be kind of nervouse, and my hand would shake a little bit when i was in the muscle. that would leave a nice mark the next day.
