    They all go horrible in the end, it's just a matter of time <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Mine 'exploded' when I was playing rugby. But everyone gets a BCG scar so don't waste time worrying about it.

    yep they all go manky, theres nothing you can do, it`ll heal afterwards though and youll be left with a little scar on your arm.

    i didnt have to have my TB done, most people i know woh had it theres went all green but some haven't done anything at all. theres isn't really anything you can do apart from keep it couvered up for a while i think.

    It helps if you dry them properly after getting them wet!
    My Tb didnt bleed, scab or go pusey!It is just a very faint small pink mark!
    I must be different to everyone else! lol!

    im afraid that i dont know much about the bcg jab.

    my vaccinations involve a teacher / doctor screaming "STOP!" as i sprint away from anything sharp and pointy.

    problem is that i could still get TB, meningitis, polio (no needle, but they didnt bring the right stuff to skool), tetanus and a few other diseases <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    i got a scar from mine and it went all green and pussy, don't worry but there is no way of stopping it. everybodies goes like that.

    i didn't do anything with mine, that was about 4 years ago.the only instructions i got was not to knock it or pick it and mine didn't go pussy at all.
    my sister had hers done a few weeks ago and just got some plasters to put over it in the shower.but the silly girl picked it and it went pussy and green.
    i'd say your best bet is to just leave it.don't put cream on it, if you were meant to do this i think the person who gave you the injection would of made some recommendations.
