This may not be the appropriate venue for such a question, but I'm
hoping there may be a doctor in the house ... or someone factually
familiar with the fallout from methamphetamine use.
springboard for the question came when I was watching a documentary
about the widespread use of methamphetamines in the United States. Mug
shots of users in the early stages of use were set side-by-side with mug
shots of the same person after prolonged use. Besides the pronounced
aging that was visible, it also seemed that many users had healing,
blotchy sores on their faces and looked a bit like the Black Death.
it up, I found that the physical effects of methamphetamine use can
include dry, itchy skin and I wondered, but didn't know, if the ravaged
faces had to do with scratching the itches. Any factual info
