    Thanks for the responses they've been helpful and reassuring. It is easy to get into panic mode over small things if you don't have a lot of experience with them.

    I have been diabetic now for nearly 20 years and this also happens to me sometimes. You need to rotate injection sites and make sure you change your needles as blunt needles will also cause bleeding/ bruising. If your still worried talk to your diabetes team.

    Injecting for over 50 years and still sometimes draw a little blood but never worry about it.
