Treatment site reaction

Customer Question

Treatment for injection site reaction
Submitted: 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I missed the vein when injecting meth anphedamine and the site is red and swelled. It looks similar to a burn. What can I do to make it go away?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
See a doctor.
This can be staph infection or something more dangerous.
Needs antibiotics most likely.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I don't believe it is a staph infection because it happened once before and I used antibiotics without change of condition . The condition lasted almost a month. This is a toxic reaction to the compounds of the drug. Is there a treatment to draw the poison out or a way to neutralize the reaction. I can send a picture if you would like.
