Hello; Welcome to MH. I'm sorry to hear of the constant battle with injections.
I would recommend Lidocane on the site area after the injection. My Dad used this and found it very effective. You can either use the cream or the Patch but the Patch has to be prescribed and is very expensive. Also, talk with your Doctor. They have different types of topical creams and ointments that can be very effective as well.
Take care and good luck in the future,

Thank you, we will try that. It is actually my gentleman friend who is having the problem. We are 70. He is so bruised and sore that he wants to stop taking insulin.
