I’ve recently switched to methotrexate injections and I’m using the Metoject pens. I’m finding they bruise quite a bit. I also use the Simponi pens monthly but don’t get as much bruising from these. Of course it could just be that with both lots of injections, I am noticing the bruises more but feeling that my thighs are looking very battered.
Does anyone have any tips on how to reduce the bruising?
Hi I use Metoject pens but inject into my stomach, alternating sides each week. I pinch skin into to fold and inject into that and, so far, no bruises 🤞. Might be something for you to try and good luck, hope it helps.
Thank you - I’m going to try that tomorrow! I’ll let you know how I get on
