Brief Answer: Seek help Detailed Answer: Good Day XXXX! Thank you for asking. My name is Dr S Khan and i would like to help you in this issue of heroin withdrawl symptoms.Heroin is the diacetyl morphine a semisynthetic derivative which you have used and it is very addictive and i want you to seek help before it ruins you, get signed up for group therapies and i want you to visit ER and let them help you get this out of your system and put you in the rehab. Scar and swelling on the injection site is a little issue here but it leads to a lot of transmissible diseases this way if continued. SO please i humbly request you to stop and seek help. All you need is addiction rehabilitation and a good monitoring and help. Get well soon. Tingling and swelling will go away. You have a bigger crocodile in your pond. Take care and dont forget to close the discussion please. regards Dr S Khan
