Re: [IPk] Scarring



Not much help I know, but is it that some people scar or mark easier than
others?  I cant see any marks or lumps or whatever on Sasha's arms. We have
been using the arms almost exclusively for injection for three years.  She has
been having 3 or four injections a day for over a year.  We have know started
to try elsewhere under much protest.  If she had those lumpy bits from
injecting would they be obvious or can they be just below the skin?
