Response from Dr. Young

If I read your note correctly, you have superficial thrombophlebitis (a small blood clot) after a peripheral IV line. Such clots are sometimes painful, but rarely result in any long-term complications.

Treatment is usually simple: pain medications as needed, warm compresses seem to help too.

Be well, BY

PID's pimples
