Re: [IP] infection-need advise

Hello Annelies.

I have some concern over what you describe.
Do you have an elevated temperature?
Does it feel tender under your arm pit or in your groin?
You could have a Staph infection.
You should  apply hot dry compress or heating pad to keep the site draining 
and should probably be on an oral antibiotic.
Check for ketones also.
If the bottle of insulin looks clowdy discard it and start with a fresh vial.
You may need to use a betadine swap prep to keep the site from becoming 
infected in the future.  When the infection is under control you will be able 
to control the BG.
