I have a niece 18 years old who is in a recovery center. She is addicted to ice. She didn't use the drug since she has been in the center for the last three weeks. She started having rashes. Is it typical for withdraw symptoms? What can be done?
Dry skin, rashes and sores are common physical effects associated with the use of crystal meth but rashes aren't among the common symptoms experienced during withdrawal. Not everyone experiences the same symptoms during withdrawal though because drugs affect people differently. I would express my concerns about the rashes your niece is getting with someone from the recovery center, they will let you know if it's more common than I'm aware of and if so, what should be done.
