HELLO PAM I AM DANIEL and the areas that are hard are scar tissue build up. I have these too and I use very quick hot to warm baths and baby oil gel to soften the areas up. Oh any question that you ask can be answered right here on this sight. I do not know if you know this but it is not against this sights policy to leave your address here, I used to and they erased mine. Be carefull and the injection sights will soften. try to give those injection sights a rest. BLESS YOU BUNCHES,bye for now!!!!!!!

Hi Pam

 

I had that problem soon after I started copaxone.  The advice given was to massage the area and use witch hazel but also not to stay in that area but rotate.  Whichever injection site you are rottate between a upper, middle and lower median.  Hope that helps you as it helped me.

How long have you been on copaxone?  I do rotate.  Thanks for you advice.

I have been on just over a year but for the last 9 months I have had no problems at all - although I do understand you have been on copaxone a lot longer than I have

I hope you do as well as I have been doing since I started on copaxone.  I had a lot of problems and it seemed in about two and a half to three years after I started that I was and have been symptom free I have had a few problems but nothing like back then.  Good luck to you and I will try your advice.  Thanks
