I had Botox about just about 8 days ago and I have small pimple like spots in the injection site. The nurse likes to use a fresh needle for each injection site so used about 6 needles and all were sterile and in packaging. There was no cross contamination. I've been applying witch hazel to these spots but why have I reacted like this? Incidentally I'm very pleased with the result. This was the first time I've had Botox I'm just a bit miffed about having these red pimples. Thanks for any advice

Pimples after Botox
I have never seen pimples or red bumps persist on my patients unless there is a bruise which is rare. Was there powder on the nurse's gloves that then got innoculated in the skin and caused the bumps? They should go away on their own, but see a dermatologist.

Pimples after botox injection
If you have pimples after Botox injection, you should show this to your dermatologist and let them evaluate it. This is not a typical result after Botox.
