Just keep an eye on it. Look for symptoms such as soreness, redness that spreads, and fever, etc. This will usually indicate an infection. However, just because it is red and maybe sore doesnt mean it is an infection...usually it is not. Just keep an eye on it

Basically you need to differentiate between infection vs inflammation. Having occured so soon after injecting I'd guess it's inflamed. It's happened to me with delts, I never inject there anymore, and resolves in a day or two. However, you can get a sizable abcess in as little as 24 hours. Puss, fever, red streaks, continued redness should be signs of concern.

Could be infection or imflamation. I know alot of the time with T4 people compain about redness around the site of injection, but this is generally always swelling. T4 has a tendecny to swell and hurt. I would watch it, but the odds are its just swelling and T4 will probably do this to you after ever injection. Its good that your adding deca with it. If you hadn't and this is swelling and the swelling would be much much great and a ton more painful! IMO

its just your boyd reaction to the high BA content of t400. **** hurts like none other from what i heare. just make sure to watch the area. if it dont go down in a few days and is warm to the touch, check your temp to see if u are running a fever.
