Is this infected?

Is where my iv was infected? I had a c section on 11/08/2019 and today is 11/14/2019. Is this abnormal iv healing? When the needle was in my hand it got bent back like 3 or 4 times and it hurt really bad.  

Update:

I don't have a fever or chills or any of that but maybe it could still be infected without those symptoms? I forgot to ask my OB today about it. 

Update 2:

Also I mean the IV was bending backwards in my hand due to a lack of care on the nurses part. I asked her multiple times to wrap it so it would stay down because the tape was coming off but she wrapped it wrong each time.

    It's healing beautifully.

    Definitely not infected.

    Sorry you had a bad experience with the nurse.
