My arm suddenly felt itchy tonight by my implant (this isn’t new- it’s felt on and off itchy since I had it put in back in January) and a small lump appeared and then now about half an hour later its got bigger. It feels quite firm but looks like a blister. It’s about the size of my thumb nail. Any ideas what it could be?!

Sorry to clarify- the lump is new, it just isn’t unusual for my implant to feel itchy which is why I didn’t take notice straight away!

oh that looks a very sore reaction, i would want that removed asap. maybe the implant has dislodged or you're allergic to it, can you see a doctor.

But would it react that suddenly 2 months on from being fitted?

don't know the answer but a doctor should.

Could it be an insect bite? I take a reaction very similar to midge bites. Try an antihistamine maybe? See if it goes down at all.

Hello, wondered if you found out what it was?

I have found a similar bump around the end of my implant tonight, it looks very similar to your picture but smaller in diameter

@ChloeEdwards25 I have had my implant removed and I still get the itching and this lump. My doctor couldn’t find any explanation for it. It drives me crazy 🙄
