Hi,

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Warm and sore to touch, when talking about arm after iv is always alarming. Infection generally does not present so early in this way. However,
Physical examination is mandatory to assess this properly. I feel that the symptoms described by you needs an emergency evaluation and treatment. Please visit a ER at the earliest. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
