    Injection site infection/abscess?

    Started running DHB and was injecting small doses eod with test to minimize pip after a week i felt sick with very mild flu symptoms, muscle soreness, and had abscesses at all 4 injection sites. This has happened to me before with tren ace and doing daily injections but went away after a while. anyone else experience this?

    I have a similar issue when MTC is used as a carrier oil.

    DHB can be harsh, depending on how it’s brewed - but more often than not.

    Does yours have the strong guaiacol smell? It could be the solvent, which is an irritant to muscle tissue.

    It has a strong smell almost a Smokey smell. As far as horrible pip a lot of people have mentioned it has not been that bad. sucks because i have to skip injections because of this

    Why do you have to skip injections?

    i have an abscess at all 4 injection sites I regularly use, and they stay for a few days. it seems to be getting better, ive had the same issue with tren before and it took like 3 weeks before I could inject regularly.

    It's not an abscess if it lasts a few days. An abscess can last for many weeks... you're just experiencing inflammation/PIP.

    I say find some new sites and keep jabbing man. 4 total sites really isn't that many. Heck injecting bis and tris on both arms is 4

    Right

    An abscess ain’t goin nowhere for a bit, even with antibiotics

    Sounds like a lump with PiP


    After a decade of injecting, I can seriously spike b12 & not feel shit - all of my new gear is made with MCT oil. . . When I first started, I’m glad mostly everything was made with GSO

    It's filled with puss and last probably 3-5 days.

    DHB beat me to hell too and caused major inflammation and swelling in places I’d never experienced issues before. I had to lower the volume and am about to wrap up my first DHB run. Can’t say that I was blown away with it. Definitely some strength gains and has kept me nice and dry while adding LBM and reducing fat. That being said, each shot caused me to get welts and the PIP with anything over 1 ML was crippling most days...

    I wouldn’t bother with that shit. Id just run test at 500-600 mg 2-3 times a year and just lean bulk if i were you. Food is number 1 , training is 2, and have something like test to support growth and recovery

    That's probably just oil that hadn't absorbed yet. If it were a real abscess, it wouldn't last only 3-5 days.

    Okay checked all the sites today their is only that has puss and it's roughly 1/4" below the skin. The other sites are hard, all feel about the same soreness wise. So I'm assuming theirs something going on with the one and the rest is just the pip.

    Interesting

    Maybe from a solvent, maybe EO - or the carrier



    I've had some odd shit fairly deep before, mostly within the first few years of spiking up. I never drew puss, but had golf ball sized knots maybe about 1/4-1/2" under the injection site that wouldn't go away for days to weeks - I never tried drawing shit out, I just waited them out


    A few required antibiotics - But, now I swear I can shoot up just about anything without getting a reaction. Never tried dhb tho - but, prob had about a 1/2 liter of tren

    I had an abcess in the glute before, it's no way near a pip. It stings real bad and I could'nt sleep on one side. you don't need to wait 3-5 days, go to the doc just to play it safe. u don't wait on an abcess....it can dig into bone and cause paralysis. go to the ER very soon and have it looked at. There's no shame in going to the ER, dude. Just say u inject B-12 vitamins IM. I've done it before. Your medical record is confidential info between u and the doctor. Trust me, I'd be on my way to the doc by now. Don't worry too much, but just go...a clean bill of health and not worrying is priceless, so you can focus on other things.
