Is it considered interdermal, subq, or is it just called local?
An intradermal (ID) injection is the injection of a small amount of fluid into the dermal layer of the skin. It is frequently done as a diagnostic measure, such as for tuberculin testing (screening test for tuberculosis referred to as a tine test) and allergy testing (placing very small amounts of the suspected antigen or allergen in a solution under the skin). The intradermal injection is made in skin areas of the body that are soft and yielding.
A subcutaneous injection is administered as a bolus into the subcutis, the layer of skin directly below the dermis and epidermis, collectively referred to as the cutis.
Such as anesthesia could be administered as per the convenience of the patient & the doc/pharmacis
