Find Addiction Rehabs (FAR), which is based in Boca Raton, FL, and offers information resources on addiction and rehab treatment, has recently published three articles covering common concerns of people struggling with an addiction, such as getting help for face and mouth sores from meth use. The second article focuses on a speedball, which is the combination of stimulants and depressants, and the increased risk of overdose. The third article focuses on the possibility of snorting crack.
People abusing methamphetamine often struggle with the problem known as meth sores. These are skin sores or wounds that can be found all over the body. They can be painful and may result in skin-picking that may even make them worse. These skin sores differ in their appearance. Some are in the form of open sores that are red and irritated and may contain pus or blood in the middle. Other meth sores appear like dry and irritated skin or like burns. The meth sores located in the mouth area may appear like cold sores.
The typical reasons for meth sores are meth mites, meth sweat, meth pipes, a weakened immune system, and poor blood flow. Meth mites are imaginary bugs that meth users think are crawling all over their skin. This is a hallucination but makes them scratch their skin resulting in sores and open wounds. The meth is also excreted through the sweat, which causes skin irritation. Those who smoke meth using pipes also develop sores in the mouth when they burn themselves with the pipes. Meth abuse also leads to a weakened immune system, which makes it more difficult for the body to combat infections. Lastly, regular use of meth can restrict blood vessels, resulting in poor blood flow, which may result in dry and scaly skin patches that can get irritated.
The second blog post explains what is a speedball and the overdose risks of speedball mixtures. In speedballing, the drug user combines two highly addictive and powerful drugs, such as heroin and cocaine. Cocaine is a stimulant that increases dopamine, which results in an intense high that is usually accompanied by feelings of euphoria, alertness, and increased energy. Heroin is an opiate drug that produces a feeling of relaxation and euphoria. Combining the results into a more intense but short-lived euphoria.
There is a high risk of getting an overdose with speedballing because the combination can overwhelm the system and may shut it down. A speedball overdose may result in a heart attack, respiratory failure, stroke, and seizures.
The article on the possible snorting of crack cocaine points out that it is indeed possible but warns people against doing it because it is not safe. Even just doing it once can be fatal or cause serious health issues. Powdered cocaine is cocaine hydrochloride, which can be more quickly taken into the system compared to crack cocaine, which is cocaine bicarbonate. Crack cocaine when snorted is processed by the digestive system because it is not readily absorbed by the body. Nevertheless, just one use can result in an addiction that can have many adverse side effects.
