Infusion Set Bruise?

Inset 30 bruise here, anyone else had this before?
I pinched the skin up a lot for this one because it is right below my ribs. Anyways, anyone have this before?

You probably hit a capillary. I prefer spots that have a bit of fat on them and I never pinch up.

My son gets those from time to time, but not often. Looks a bit painful though, hope it isn’t.

Yes. I take aspirin as well.

That happens to me once in a while, but usually they don’t hurt much. Only at the moment of insertion they’re sometimes painful. Most of the time that pain fades away after a few hours. If not, I swap it out.
