I had blood taken from an elbow and two hands by a cardiac clinic nurse who didn t seem to know what she was doing. She failed to get blood from the elbow and one hand and was finally half-successful with the other hand. Both hands were extremely painful while she was doing it. Two days later I have painful bruising across the whole backs of both hands, which I can deal with, but one of the hands has started to feel very itchy. Is this just another symptom of the bruising or is it a sign I have acquired an infection?
