Can I get a catheter-related infection when receiving amphotericin B?

Catheter-related infections can occur when administering prescription medications through intravenous solutions. Watch for tenderness or redness around the skin where the needle enters your vein. Also, swelling, pain or warmth can indicate an infection. If the area is irritated or draining fluid, these are also concerns. Be sure to contact your doctor or health care provider as soon as any of these symptoms occur.
