It is unlikely that you may have any nerves affected. Also your swelling may not be a reaction to penicillin itself because you were alright for 3 days with it. It seems that there could be a problem at the injection site. sometimes because of repeated intravenous injection swelling and pain tends to occur at the injection site due to various reasons. You should probably change the injection site and see if it helps.
