Swelling And Pain After Botox

Postby ethre » 18 Mar 2020, 12:05

Hello! I had 2 shots of botox 2 weeks go. After a week I started having a lot of pain, swelling and itching. Went to the doctor and she told me I have an infection. I'm now on antibiotics and bed rest.

Still feeling horrible. No paralyzing effect from the botox either.

Has anyone had similar problems with botox? Did anything help you?

I had Botox but didn't get an infection. It's actually quite rare but looks like you were among the few who get it. It can take a while to kick in before you feel the paralyzing effect. Maybe a couple of more weeks. In the meantime keep the area clean and do sitz baths to help with healing.
8/16-12/16: Fissure due to antibiotics
5/17: Botox to sphincter, fissure healed
9/19: Trigger point injections and pudendal nerve block
11/19: Botox to pelvic floor
8/20: Botox to pelvic floor in new location.
On and off in pelvic physical therapy

Keep the area clean. Sitz baths after every bm and again before bed. Keep area dry and dry it with a hair dryer.

I didn't get an infection but it was swollen for awhile
