I have had health issues related to shooting heroin mixed with meth. I have never read anything about this specifically so thought it important to share. Over extended drug use and a consistent herion addiction, I began to add meth into the IV as well. This resulted in abscesses. I had never had abscesses before or ever after, only in the several weeks of adding meth to the mixture. I had two serious abscesses, both on my legs in places I was not injecting.
I had two serious abscesses, both on my legs in places I was not injecting.
I treated them both myself, resulting in scarring. The strange aspect was seeing something black come out of my leg where the abscess was. This is gross so if squimish I would stop reading here. It was mostly pus, normal looking pus with a large piece of a gooey black substance. It was a soft solid, independent of the pus. No idea what it was and have never found any information. I am assuming it is similar to the pus, but of a different reaction. Peace and stay safe.
