He got shots in his arm January 24. I felt his arm & there is a hard lump in the spot of it. Thats not right I know, but what could it be?

That's actually very common and can last for quite awhile.

The oils from the shot. Massage it with a warm washcloth, should break it up and get rid of the lump. Be gentle it could still be sore.

Yeah, I think it can last up to 6 months following the shot.

Ya, have you tried massaging yet?



Also watch for red streaking from it, if that occurs take him to the doctor, it could be a reaction. But if it's not bothering him just try the warm washcloth thing.
