    Can the body cure an injection infection by itself?

    Had a lil fever for a night, arm swole up,since it has went down ,hurts to the touch but not warm,no more fever,i can feel a slight lump where the center of the pain is,can the body fix this by itself or does it need to be lanced?

    Yes the body can fight infection thats what your immune system does , however if you think its not clearing up I would go to your doctor

    I can't see to determine and I don't think you should guess. It's not worth it. If an infection and it gets out of control, and you won't know when until it is out of control you can suffer tissue damage.
    Good that you think it has stabilized but a quick visit to the ER will give you a better idea and some antibiotics will take care for sure with no to little sides. See the doc or ER if it is still red, warm at all, and painful. ..crazy mike

    I wouldn't chance it. If it is persisting for more than a day or two, past the normal PIP, I'd go get it checked out. Not worth risking a widespread infection or an abcess of some sort

    just use common sense. if it feels worse when you wake up, not a good sign

    but, the body is an amazing machine. It is designed to fix itself to a certain extent.

    If fever persists definitely go see a dr. Not sure if they have urgent care in your area. If it's getting better and healing, I'd give it a day or two.

    As a disclaimer, I am obviously not a doctor.

    I would love to see a dr to get a second opinion but if my company would hear through the insurance it would be a prob,but that doesnt mean I would risk my health over it,like I said I have no fever or nothin,just a sore delt,lil swollen,i would say its virgin muscle bein I pinned the front of my delt but my buddy which gets the same says the same thing happened to him this week.im even thinkin of pinnin this thing with a bigger gauge to see what comes out,bad idea?

    Are you saying you're thinking of jamming another needle into the already irritated and possibly infected area....?
    Or please tell me you meant next time you're going to use a bigger gauge needle.
