See doctor: I appears that you have a infection (likely staph) which needs to be treated by a doctor. If you don't have one, go to the ER before this spreads further. Perhaps you can get some help on your meth addiction as well even though I don't believe these two events are related (unless you have been injecting the material).

Can meth cause pimples and boils if so why? I only did it a few times

Can meth cause pimples and boils if so why? I only did it a few times

Meth skin: Yes of course. You change your brain, skin, and mouth norms when you use this dangerous drug. Many users do not eat well. Their hormones get messed up. Their perceptions of reality get damaged. Their teeth become a problem and the skin gets dry, damaged, picked at. Please let your body heal and never use this substance again.

You would be best: Treated by an evaluation by a health care professional. Undoubtably you will need bacteriostatic creams for the burns and potentially systemic antibiotics. Make an appointment for evaluation ASAP. An infection can set in and go systemic very rapidly in this situation.

What could be the cause of my 8 year old son having too many white bloodcells in his urine? He has no infection amd no bacteria were found

WBC's in Urine: White blood cells (WBC's) in urine denote some inflammation, not necessairily infection. Make sure to get the urine test repeated after your son has been well hydrated as many times dehydration causes local inflammation and show white cells in urine. If repeat testing show persistance of WBC's, other causes of inflammation in bladder or kidney disease, including stones, need to be ruled out.
