    Anyone's delt look like this after an injection?

    Did my 1st delt injection Friday night with 1 CC of sust using a 25G 1" pin. It went in slowly and smoothly, very little blood. I disinfected the area first, as I always do, with rubbing alcohol. And the needle was brand new, of course.

    I woke up in the middle of the night and this shit was in pain! I took an advil and went back to sleep. Then, Saturday (chest and tris day) it was red and swollen a bit. I had a bit of trouble doing exercises tat required arms over head. Today the redness/swelling has extended all the way to my bicep. I can't move it without pain. I couldn't even do hack squats tonight because the pad resting on my shoulders was too painful.

    I figure this will go away...but wtf?

    Pumpseeker,

    I've never had it happen to my delts but, it's happened to my bi's and calves. It'll be sore for a few days but it'll go away. It's nothing to worry about IMO.
    I think it may be from the BA content.

    I think you're right. The same thing happened when I did my quad that one time, red and swole for a week. I have always just done glutes and never had the redness there. Maybe it's because I have so much tissue to absorb the stuff back there?

    Not saying this is YOUR situation here,

    But a buddy of mine had his upper arm swell up so he couldnt bend his elbow. Got some stuff from the docs but took 2-3 weeks to go back down, all up 4 weeks off training.

    Basically it was an infection, no idea where from.

    Watch it and if it heats up and your arms swells go to a Doc ASAP

    What brand of Sus are you using ??

    If it's TT Testanon....well, let's just say you might want to find another type of Sus - cause it's gonna do that every time. I once tried this shit (the first batch) and oh I couldn't walk right for days.

    It's more than likely due to the BA content.

    By the way, you're pretty yoke.

    Mine has looked like that before a few times. Like said before if it goes away in a couple of days you should be fine but if it continues to spread or does not lessen go to a doc.

    One of my sust injections look just like that this year. I can say it was like a sunburn looking redness. It hurt for about a week then started to go down....so you are looking at about 2 weeks of dealing with this at the most. I was using Paki sust. The others didnt give me a problem it was just one......maybe it was a injection that was too low in the delt or it got somehow infected. Use glutes and quads next time let the delts rest.
    Peace

    We can't ban somebody just because they are ignorant, he really hasn't broken any rules...he's just a jackass...so my advice is ignore him, since he obviously knows nothing, and eventually he'll go away.

    As far as the redness, swelling and pain...been there and done that. I would guess that the gear your using has an extremely high BA content. In th past I used Bruce Lee's pro and shot in my calf...it was very swollen, very red and hot to touch for about 4-6 days. I was very close to going to the doctor. I never used his prop again and I never shot calves again. Give it a few days pump and it should subside.

    Thanks for the advice guys...

    KeyMastur-I'm using "infar" sust 250 amps from India. They have white labels with green writing. I've been injecting 3 amps a week for the last 6 weeks and only had this problem twice...when I tried my quad for the first time and when I tried my delt this time.

    I did inject it kind of low on the delt Big R. Also, in twisting around to push the plunger, the needle might have twisted while it was in there.

    I don't have this problem in the glutes...I've actually become quite good at injections back there.

    The soreness seems batter today but my entire delt is still red. It should go away in the next few days...if not, I'll be seeing a doc.

    Thanks for all the feedback bros

    PS,

    Get a friend to do your delt injections. Explain exactally how you want them done (aspiration, how high,etc..) I cant do delts with out pushing the needle more in and moving it while I push the plunger.....


    Your redness and soreness will subside soon. I wore a T-shirt with sleeves to the gym for a week or more while I hade this redness.

    Thanks for posting the pic. If I'd seen that on my arm I'd have thought I had a cellulitis (which you don't have if it's getting better.) It's helpful to know one can get that and it not be serious.

    Your friend may have had an infection, but pumpseeker does not from looking at those pics and his description.

    It looks like some of the gear leaked out of the muscle and caused an immune response (the swelling, heat and eventual bruising).

    It's common with vet gear and some UG gear.

    I kept ice on it all last night after a heavy back and biceps workout. The redness seems to be fading a little but it's still sore as fuck. Interesting what longhornDR said about the immune response.

    I think it's going to heal up quickly...better, as I'm heading to the beach this weekend!

    From now on, I'm doing glutes only!

    no, infar sust amps from India, actually. I never had this problem with QV stuff...but then again, I never shot in the delts before either. I'm now with you on avoiding them bro....this shit is screwing up my training!

    I had the same thing happen with sust and 25g pin. The oil is just too damn thick to push through that, so I think I moved a little bit too when I was injecting. One you slice that muscle inside its just a matter of time, you have to wait till its healed to risk futher tearing
    I switched to 23g and ahhhh! so much better.

    Generally, I ve heard that if the injections spot turns red and is warm to the touch = infection.....

    Mine looked exactly like that before on two occasions...one with bruising as I think I hit a ven or cappilary and it blead all the way down my arm from my shoulder..the other was hot and red and swollen...from high dose alcohol content irritating it....

    I really miss delt injections but have sworn them off as I have had a lump of oil in my delt for about a month now and it will not go down with ice heat massage etc....

    The redness/swelling has almost disappeared. Who knows exactly why my body responded that way, but it's almost back to normal now. After wearing a T shirt to the gym the last week, I was finally able to wear a tank yesterday. No more delt injections with sust for me though! Man that was painful! I could barely raise my arm a few days.

    i got that exact same thing (looks exactly the same) from putting .8cc homemade prop + .8cc homemade tren into my biceps and triceps. as per people's advice, i'm now putting in less than 1cc per spot injection, and it doesn't swell or cause that redness. oh yeah, mine itches also, kinda like a rash.

    Don't get discouraged from this bro, it is quite common. And besides, your delts are very well developed, they can handle injections. Also, the more you go on, I would venture to guess that you'll be doing EOD injections, so you're gonna need more available areas than just your glutes.

    Hey pumpseeker, the same thing has happened to me but when using rocketfuel last year, I did the samething you did to prep the area, but know i disinfect the needle to prevent infection, also consider that you may have hit a nerve also, sounds like a little of both, but it will go away in time.
