Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. The swollen upper lip with injecting meth on the top of the left hand may be due to snorting meth as well as using it under your mucous membrane to get a faster high. I also believe that injecting meth may cause you to have hives like reaction if the drug is adulterated i.e. laced with other substances to make you have different kinds of reactions. I believe it may subside but you will need to consult a psychiatrist to get answers with regards to your problems with dependence on these drugs and possibly go into rehab to get yourself on the path to recovery.

I hope this helps. Take good care of yourself and have a lovely day!
