Two UFC Fighters were infected by IV rehydration
I was on a plane going to ref in Arizona once when I noticed a red line running down from my hand, and up a vein in my arm. I knew it was an infection, and marked the progress with a pen as it crawled up my arm. I found a Doc in a Box when I landed and got a scrip for antibiotics and in 12 hours or so, the red line started to recede.
