Missed Hit-Numbness, Blisters, and Hives!

A couple of weeks ago, SWIH was IVing some high-purity tar heroin (about 80-90% pure), when she slipped out of her vein, and had a very small missed hit (she'd already got most of the dope in, except for maybe the last 15 units or so). She's mildly allergic to morphine, so usually a missed hit stings/itches and burns badly for a minute or two, and then just turns really red, but goes back to normal within an hour or two. This time, SWIH instantly developed this weird rash that not only enveloped the entire surrounding area of injection, but about 1/3 of her arm, which also went completely numb very quickly. Usually, SWIH's missed hits are red and slightly lumpy, but this one resulted in several large hives and blisters, and resembled a second-degree burn. Overall, it took about a day for the feeling to return and the blisters/hives to go away. SWIH thought this might have been an allergic reaction caused by a cutting agent (possibly lidocaine b/c of numbness?), but was wondering if anyone's pet has ever had a similar experience, and if they know what caused it? Thanks in advance !

Re: Missed Hit-Numbness, Blisters, and Hives!

This has happened to me before. It's just an allergic reaction. It didn't always happen when I missed a hit but it did sometimes. It freaked me out the first time it happened, too. It goes awy on its own after a while but you can get it to go away a lot quicker if you take a couple benadryl or other antihistamine.

great harm reduction advice, thanks for including personal experience!

Re: Missed Hit-Numbness, Blisters, and Hives!

yes it happened to me a lot. a couple of time when i shot up i missed totally and i would just draw it back into the needle again and shoot again but once you missed if you draw it up again its never the same amount its always less just remember that could cause a bad infection so if it looks bad and feels bad for a long time consult a Dr.

Re: Missed Hit-Numbness, Blisters, and Hives!

I think this has definitely happened to every IV heroin user once or twice.

My junkie friend Ivan had a lot of experience with IVing heroin. Missing a hit, even a little, was just a fact of life. He discovered that taking a fast acting 24 hour non-drowsy histamine a few minutes before the shot (such as dissolve-in-your-mouth Alavert) greatly reduced the severity of a missed hit hive attack. Often, even if a hit was missed, the area around the injection would just get a little red and painful, disappearing within ten to twenty minutes. Even when it was a bad enough miss to form hives, they were greatly reduced in number and disappeared much quicker.

A word of warning to anyone trying this idea: my friend knew that they worked best when taken within an hour before the shot, and he often took up to four or five in a day, every day. He later learned that it is dangerous to take too many antihistamines and overdose can cause serious medical problems. Though he noticed no ill-effects from taking that much, it is probably not safe for anyone to use any medication above the recommended dose, especially when combined with illegal drugs.
