Quit Marijuana. Having Bumps On Forehead, Sides Of Nose, Chest, Back, Upper Arms. What Could It Be?

i quit smoking marijuana about three (3) months ago and since then i ve had a kind or rash ... not clusters like a normal rash... but small bumps on my forehead and both sides of my nose (not on my nose but on my face below my eyes but above the line of my beard... nowhere else on my face... where my beard grows is not affected even after i shaved it off) and my chest , back and upper arms... i used elocon cream and they disappeared but they always return within a week... is it my body ridding itself of the THC or can it be something else like a fungus?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi there ~

I understand you have a problem with dependence on marijuana. I also think that you have been having problems with the skin disorder that you are experiencing. I think these are two different things. I also think that you will benefit from seeing a psychiatrist for marijuana dependence as well as a psychiatrist for the anxiety issues you are having from the skin disorder. A dermatological reference should be made to see if you have a fungal infection, but it seems like you have skin infection or eczema that can be easily treated. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
