Doctor Akoury says that the skin is one organ that needs daily care and attention accorded to it must be from well informed and accurate sources.

That is why when it comes to skincare, reading the information on the various products labels may not be enough for you to conclude that a given product is appropriate for your skin. In other words you must not be lazy with your skin’s health. Therefore to help you understand the magnitude of being lazy with your skin, we are going to discuss in this article how drug abuse affects the skin in all seasons and doctor Akoury is going to professionally take us through the discussion.
Let no one deceive you that some drugs are beneficial to the good health of your skin, in fact there is no better drug any ware on the surface of the earth. All the drugs known to you are all Illicit and will not add any value to your skin’s health. Some of those illicit drugs may include: heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine. All these and many more can take a severe toll on the health of your skin. Heroin for example is a central nervous system depressant that slows heart rate, blood circulation, respiration and metabolism
Skin popping as it is commonly known or the practice of injecting heroin under the top layer of the skin leaves distinctive round sores along the skin’s surface. These sores can easily become infected, resulting in permanent scars. For users who are anxious, restless or experiencing cravings, the scabs can become the focus of obsessive picking. Picking at the sores increases the risk of cellulitis, or the infection of the soft tissues underlying the dermis.
Skin lesions are common in heavy methamphetamine users. This central nervous system stimulant can cause a condition called delusional parasitosis, or the false believe that the user is infested with organisms that are crawling across her skin. This condition which is also known as “meth mites” or “cocaine bugs” can lead to severe self-mutilation if the user is acutely intoxicated.
Withdrawing from heroin, a highly addictive opiate is an intensely uncomfortable experience. Restlessness, nervousness, severe cravings and goose bumps can trigger the urge to self-mutilate. Users in withdrawal often say that they feel like they’re crawling out of their skin. In this state, skin picking may provide a momentary sense of release.
Heroin withdrawal affects the skin in several important ways. Goose bumps, along with chills, shivering and cold sweats, occur as the brain adjusts to the absence of this powerful opioid. These bumps are caused by tiny muscles that tighten at the base of the fine hairs that cover the skin. For the user in withdrawal, compulsively rubbing or tugging at the skin may counteract the sensations of cold and restlessness.
Skin picking and self-mutilation can also help the user cope with opiate cravings. The sensations of pleasure or pain are a temporary distraction from the desire to use heroin. Ritualistic picking can provide an outlet for the intense anxiety, nervous tension and restlessness that characterize withdrawal.
But skin picking provides only a temporary relief from the symptoms of opiate withdrawal. Once physical withdrawal symptoms begin, they can last for several days. The best way to avoid withdrawal symptoms like goose bumps, sweats and muscle pain is to enter a medically supervised detox program like AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. At a detox center, you can receive the physical and moral support you need to minimize the symptoms of withdrawal and avoid a relapse.
This is one such treatment which needs a lot of professionalism, when you are suffering from skin picking disorders, never try to self-medicate by all means. You could cause yourself great harm than good. It doesn’t matter how good your intention may be. Seek for professional assistance from the experts in this discipline. It is important to appreciate that during treatment of this condition, the doctor may choose to run some test just to be sure of your psychological soundness before taking any treatment action on such clients. Doctor Akoury says that due to the addictive nature of the drug (heroin) it may become necessary to carry out a comprehensive psychiatric assessment so that the right medication can be administered.
Skin picking and hair pulling, like drug or alcohol abuses are not conditions to be taken lightly because the consequences of not taking immediate action can be very destructive. Because we are dealing a very delicate organ, when strong substances like heroin are a bused, the effect on the skin can be very wanting.
