Can You Get Swelling From Crack
I have been breaking out with (which to me looks like mold) and I`m all swollen. I have the same type of lesions in my mouth like the ones on my skin. I`ve been smoking crack for ten years.
Thank you for your question. What you describe is not associated with crack cocaine use, and could be medically serious. I would strongly suggest that you see your family physician to have it evaluated. Thank you again for this question.
