Hi there. I don t use meth but I have in the past and suffered various acne issues. Currently however, I tried using legal stimulants and energy drinks to help me stay up for a new overnights job. (mistake!!) About four days ago I had a minor issue where I picked at an area directly between my eyes, on the bridge of my nose. If it helps any, essentially i thought at the time I was popping, individually, a cluster of zits and I probably pursued this to the point where I was squeezing hair follicles or my pores or something, but obviously the surface of my skin was scraped off in that small area before I came to my senses. The resulting wound is about the size of a iris of an eyeball and you can see little bumps which I assume are my pores exposed. Well, I am in the food service industry and this resulting strange type of wound is awkward and it s likely grossing people out. I realize not using the stimulants is the cure and that s completed but i d like to know what non-prescription medications or ways to treat this are most effective or also maybe common things people try but ends up making it worse- for example over-washing with harsh soaps or the traditional picking. One last thing, each day when after I shower if i even run a towel over the spot, the scab-type tissue which has softened up in the water will completely and painlessly wipe off, leaving it looking much much better. But since it four days later I m thinking that every time i do that I m simply starting all over again. But i tell ya, the scab on this particular thing gets ridiculous looking and so its very tempting to use the towel to smooth it back out. Please help and thanks!
