swelling at injection site

I was wondering if someone could give me information as to how to reduce swelling - which is quite hard and lumpy- caused by injecting subcut in the neck? The horse was injected with Baytril 10% under the skin.
Thank you if anyone can help?

Get the vet out to look at it.

I don't know if this is timely enough to help, or even correct advise. When dogs or cats have a reaction to SQ vaccines, the recommended therapy is very warm moist packs, along with massage several times a day. We just had training at work last week on this very thing, and that's what the vet said to do. Like I said, this advise was for dogs & cats, so I can't be sure but would assume it would be the same for horses.
I wonder could it be that it didn't actually go under the skin, and perhaps went into the skin? This can often cause a reaction. Same protocol, though.

Cattle use is subcutaneous. We just had to dose a boarders horse - 7 days and were instructed IV only.

So yes please talk to the vet. In the interim - hot pack the site. Unfortunately I think you are going to have a nasty abscess.
