Re: [IP] Bruising from injections



Sheri,  try to make sure that the"pinc up" of the skin is more of a "bunch up"
and your hold on the skin is not too much pressure that might cause bruising.
Of  course, there may not be a way to avoid nicking those capillaries under
the skin, but less pressure and less pinch might help prevent that.  Also,
when using the tummy,try to avoid the midline of the abdomen, as often there
are more sensitive nerve endings there. Use areas at least 3 inches in
circumference away from the "belly button".  I hope this info is helpful.
