Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be you are Venepuncture Scars of Methamphetamine Abuse. Kindly get yourself examined by a Dermatologist as you require thorough evaluation. Scar formation is the body's way of healing following injury. With time, many scars that are firm may soften and fade. They are known as hypertrophic scars. Treatment options range from allowing more time for a scar to heal, applying pressure to the scar, massage, injection or excision, the other treatment options include sclerotherapy and LASER. You can use a Sunscreen with a SPF of 15 To minimize the visibility of scar and for its protection. Stop Abusing Meth, you can always get the Help of a Counselor. Avoid sun tanning, drink eight glasses of water a day, sleep for 8 hours daily, eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. avoid stress and caffeine intake and Practice relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
