How do you know it is an infection? What if you just didn't go deep enough and got the oil inbetween the muscle& the facsia? It can get real sore & red for a few days and then go away.



Oxytetracycline was the second of the broad-spectrum tetracycline group of antibiotics to be discovered.

Oxytetracycline works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to produce proteins that are essential to them. Without these proteins the bacteria cannot grow, multiply and increase in numbers. Oxytetracycline therefore stops the spread of the infection and the remaining bacteria are killed by the immune system or eventually die.

Oxytetracycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is active against a wide variety of bacteria. However, some strains of bacteria have developed resistance to this antibiotic, which has reduced its effectiveness for treating some types of infection.

Oxytetracycline is still used to treat infections caused by chlamydia (e.g. the chest infection psittacosis, the eye infection trachoma, and the genital infection urethritis) and infections caused by mycoplasma organisms (e.g. pneumonia).

Oxytetracycline is used to treat acne, due to its activity against the bacteria on the skin that cause acne (Propionebacterium acnes). It is used to treat flare-ups of chronic bronchitis, due to its activity against the bacteria usually responsible, Haemophilus influenzae.

Oxytetracycline may also be used to treat other rarer infections, such as those caused by a group of micro-organisms called rickettsiae (e.g. Q fever). To make sure the bacteria causing an infection are susceptible to oxytetracycline your doctor may take a tissue sample, for example a swab from the infected area, or a urine or blood sample.

Yeah I read wiki, and rxlist on that antibiotic, it seems like it isnt the best for the job, but its on hand

I started to feel a little feverish, and was pretty sure that was a clear sign. The area is swollen to a small extent, not actually at the inj site, but lower. It is also pinkish (not deep red) below the inj site. It hurts to lay on/touch.

I used 1" in upper glute... this is short, but I haven't had this problem before

How long should I wait until this clears up to go in

What do you mean in your last sentence "go in"

If your tempature rose, that is a pretty good sign of infection. Still that was a short pin and maybe you didn't go deep enough into the muscle.

What I was meaning by that was, how long should I wait for this to clear up before I go in to see a doctor.

Why not go to be safe then sorry? I don't understand why people arent willing to go to the doc when this happens. Abcesses are not fun.

If you think it is infected, go in. An abscess can leave an ugly hole in your flesh. Just tell the Doc you injected some B 12
