    heat from the site and redness are common signs of an infection...if it doesn't subside within 2 days or so then seek professional help.

    Dont wait 2 days man, if its red, sore and most importantly, warm to the touch, get it looked at now. waiting 48 can only hurt you if its an infection.

    honestly i'd wait it out. take some some antihistemines and see what happens to the site after about 2 or 3 days.

    Use warm compresses for 20-25 minutes every 2-4 hours. That's what we do in the hospital. If you are running a fever or seeing puss or discharge then you will need an antibiotic. Keflex 500mg 4 x day x 7 days is commonly used unless you are allergic. I don't advise taking antibiotics without seeing your doctor.
