Tried to kill by overdosing Hydrocodone and methadone. Snorted heroine and smoked weed. A big bruise on stomach with white dots. What could this be, is it serious?

My friend tried to kill herself by overdosing on Hydrocodone and Methadone on Thursday. In the past she has snorted heroine and smoked weed (That I know of) She says she is sober right now, but she has said that a lot of times so I m not sure. Today I found a big (Soft ball size) redish bruise on her stomach, low down, and on the right side with white dots on it. What could this be, is it serious? She went to the ER on thursday and was admitted to a mental hospital for observance until yesterday.

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
It will be mostly difficult to comment on the diagnosis without physically looking at the lesion. However from your description it appears that she could be having an infection and certainly needs some antibiotics to cure the infection.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Wish you good health,
Kind regards
