Welcome to and thank you for your question.
I am going to assist you with your question. First I need a little more information-
Did you injected fever in quadriceps femoris muscle?
Have you used such injection in past?
Are you suffering from any medical condition?
Is it painful to touch?
Kind Regards,

Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
It sounds that you have mild, local reaction or irritation at the site of injection.
It may be absolutely normal to have slight pain/ swelling. It is self limiting in nature.
In case, swelling and redness around an injection site, is increasing, then you should be seen by doctor.
You need to check for these signs-
-Increased redness,
-Expanding swelling that is growing worse,
-An injection site that has a warm skin temperature.
No need to get panic, Such symptoms would get disappear by its own in few days.
You can take OTC Tylenol for pain.
Good luck and Take care.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
