My ex has been smoking meth for a while. Never touched a drug besides alcohol ever. If its been on her skin and mouth how long does it stay. Test fri.

My ex has been smoking meth for a while. Never touched a drug besides alcohol ever. If its been on her skin and mouth how long does it stay. Test fri.

If you didn't ingest: Methamphetamine, the amount that made be transferred through skin (which is essentially zero) or through kissing (which is close to zero) shouldn't result in a positive urine test. If you have depression, and are "blacking out" (losing consciousness?) you should seek medical attention for the cause and treatment. Having a methamphetamine user in your life isn't helping either, I imagine. ...Read more

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). ...Read more

Depersonalization, headaches, mental fatigue and hard small red painful bump on back of head after smoking marijuana once, what could this all be?

? Lyme work-up: A painful bump that is red could well be a target lesion from a tic bite. If you live in an area of the country where lyme disease is endemic, you may want to pursue formal evaluation (blood test) to determine your lyme titer. Lyme can be accompanied by the other symptoms described. Rocky mountain spotted fever, recluse spider bite, abscess and even closed head injury would be other possibilities. ...Read more
