Hi,

Is there any pain, burning or itching? This might be from thrombophlebitis following intravenous infusion of some drugs. However, this can be diagnosed and treated only through direct consultation and observation.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
