Thanks for writing to us.
It can cause a local reaction at the site of injection or repeated needle pricks can cause a skin problem. Otherwise it is safe.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

c-peptide:8.2 gtt fasting, 1&2hrs-84, 161, 145 . I was wondering what could happen when my c-peptide is almost double what it should be?
After going through your laboratory values, it appears you may be diabetic. C-peptide values indicate the amount of insulin in the body. It indicates good insulin production but possible insulin resistance and a diagnosis of Type II diabetes mellitus is usually taken.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
is it serious if you accidentally prick your thumb with a used insulin needle?
Not if it has never been used, or only used by you. If it is someone else's needle then you need to go the nearest urgent care center and have the needle's "owner" tested to make sure they have not got blood-borne diseases like HIV, hepatitis B hepatitis C, etc... If it was on the street etc... again, you should seek medical help since taking medicines may decrease your risk of getting HIV etc..
