Vinegar in the veins

An_246517 posted:
I used to shoot fentanyl patches using white vinegar to break down the gel. I had quit for a long time and I just started again. But now I get petechiae every time I inject in the spot I used to use the former. I don't want to know about how to stop, I want to know if I have permanently damaged my capillaries. Is there a life threatening danger if I keep getting petechiae in my arm? Also I am not using vinegar anymore, and I've read that using vitamin C helps revitalize your veins. thank you for any input.
