Brief Answer:
Depends on how large is the lump

Detailed Answer:

The treatment depends on how large is the lump and the reaction of the crystal meth to the skin. IF the skin reacts and causes bruising then you have to wait it out. Most often small lumps disappear on their own. They do not need any intervention.

Hope this helps.
