Seeking answers for some rare traumatic experience due to meth

    I did meth (snorted) to some extent last year, but quit after several traumatic experiences that caused me to really suffer. It was causing a thick sticky yellow colored substance to come out of my skin/pores and it came out all over my body not just one area and right after taking a shower, I knew something was wrong the first time this happened, but still kept trying it thinking it was just a bad batch or a one time occurence. I had been up for a few days because I was just having some fun, I was worn out, I was tired and ready for bed, but I took a shower first, while I was showering I started washing my legs and a couple areas where I wiped looked like red patches, these patches didn't show up till right after I washed over them with soap and they burned some. When I got out of the shower my skin felt sticky and had a light yellowish tint to it, by the time I got to my room to get dressed it started slowly at first coming out of my skin it would cause a red burning area on my arms they weren't bumps like a rash, it literally looked like burns like hot water was poured over my arms and I would get these sores in my mouth, or on my tongue where this stuff was even coming out through my mouth too and the taste was so bad, I almost got sick at times, but the sores in my mouth felt more like burns and my lips got real red and they burned as well. All of this only happened when I was doing meth and would take a shower. Keep in mind I stayed hydrated at all times and I made sure to eat, plus I was already taking a multi vitamin. I would even take Benadryl when I did meth to see if it would help and it didn't. This yellow secretion started after I showered, it happened a couple times so I tried baths and it didn't happen anymore, except the last time I did meth, it happened regardless of what I did and that was when I was done with it! Anyway, when it was happening it looked like chill bumps coming up on my arms, my fingers would get real red, started burning, and would swell up then the yellow fluid started coming out then it stopped for a minute,what looked like chill bumps right before it started went away then it would do the same thing, my arms would have these chill bumps and it started again and the same thing happened over and over for about an hour then go away and when it was over I would go to bed. When I woke up in the morning my sheets, my blanket, and one of my pillows had yellow marks on them from where it came off my skin that stained them. I made sure this was not imaginary and I took some pictures of some areas where it was worse like on top and on the palms of my hands, and I took pictures of the red burn like areas on both arms, plus my boyfriend even saw it when it happened and he was shocked but he had no idea what it was either. I haven't been able to find anything out about this when researching and trying to get answers and even though I don't do it anymore I still wanna know what was happening because it only happened when I was doing it. I wasn't a regular user either just fyi but I won't ever go near that stuff again. Can anyone tell me what was happening and what was going on please? I really need some closure on this because there are a few scars from this incidence on my legs and arms because of the severe itching after these incidences from residue left on my skin.

    @LeamB Hello and welcome. Thank you for sharing your story with us and I'm sorry that you experienced that. I have no idea what it would be. I'm not that familiar with meth so I wouldn't really even have a good guess. I'm glad that you don't go near that stuff anymore. You never know what chemical are in that crap and your body coming could just not be able to handle it for some reason. I hope you find your answers and I hope you go on to live a happy, healthy, peaceful life :)

    Thank you, I have never touched that stuff again since that last time. A friend told me my body was rejecting it in a different way that was causing pain and discomfort. I guess everyone's body chemistry is very different. I truly appreciate your comment and I am happy

    @LeamB... Wow. Your experience sounds awful. Unfortunately, I have no idea what could've caused that secretion you experienced. I'm just happy you haven't used meth again.

    Thanks for coming here and sharing with us.
