I got a hard lump, soreness, bruising at a site that was used 7 days prior. Yes, I’m on Prednisone, have small veins, and didn’t drink as much water as my first Ivig 5 day treatment. I used Arnica cream on the site and it cleared and felt better. My first Ivig was outpatient, but this one was during a hospital stay, so I kept the IV in for as long as possible. The reason why this site blew is because one of the med students that was being taught to do strength testing actually grabbed it, even though I reminded them all that I had it in (I had a sweater on). lol Hope this helps.
