I was just giving my cat his insulin injection and accidentally jabbed myself with the needle. My cat has used this same needle a few times now, but I am not sure if this will do anything to me because of this. My finger, where I pricked myself, feels tingly and is starting to do a bit of swelling (like a small mosquito bite).
Is there anyone here who knows if this is ok or not? I am kind of getting scared and feeling paranoid.

The syringe was full of insulin. My finger has now stopped tingling, but it has moved to my arm. Might just be a psychological thing caused by slight paranoia. The small swelling remains. I'll see how it is tomorow (doctors closed). I hate waiting at the after hours doctor. After waiting in the waiting room with 100 other sick people for 3 hours, you come out worst than when you went in.
