I need some advice, but I also want to make sure I don't break the HW rules smilewinkgrin
so here goes...

I have an injury and its swollen and red around it, it's fairly painful, but not overly bad.

Should I be worried about it as it's never happened before?

I hope I've done ok with the rules rolleyes

You should go see a Dr about that you might have an infection.

It does sound like you have an infection. I would see a doctor asap and get some antibiotics and some ointment for the wound. Please do take care of yourself. An infection can spread.

Hope that you are okay.

Hugs, Karen
PS  Maybe dab some peroxide on it occasionally until you can see a doctor.
