Can I get an infection from pentamidine injection?

Yes. If you take pentamidine injections in your veins, you can get an infection where the needle enters your skin. The infection needs to be treated so it does not get worse, so talk to your doctor right away if you have any of the following symptoms:
  • pain
  • swelling
  • tenderness
  • redness
  • irritation
  • drainage
  • warm feeling
