Hi all! It’s been 2 weeks for me now and for the last 3 injections I used the autoinjector – so much easier IMO. I find that engaging it with one hand and pressing the button with the other means I don’t have to press it into my skin too hard or pinch up the skin (it’s possible to engage it and press the button with one hand but a bit more fiddly!)

I’ve been taking an antihistamine an hour before and whilst I do still get hot, red site reactions but they don’t seem to last long. The only site that’s been problematic so far has been the top of thigh – can still feel a lump and it’s still a bit itchy almost a week later. I think a bruise might be coming too. Time to try the Arnica cream!
