Injected meth on the wrong spot, swelling and redness has reduced. Home remedies?

I m new to injecting drugs and I used meth but while doing so I missed the vein then shortly after I tried it again, same arm but about an inch to an inch and a half below my missed spot. What should I do? Swelling and redness has went down but just to be on the safe side, home remedies please. Trying to stay away from the Doctors with this situation.

Hi thanks for your question
By mistake, you have injected drugs into perivascular, subcutaneous tissue.
You can try for following home remedies:
Keep the arm elevated
Warm sponging of the part.
Local application of the anti inflammatory cream
Hope I answered the question
