How Do I heal sores from snorting pills?

by Olivia
(East Liverpool Ohio)

I've been snorting 10-15 Vicodin 10mg & percocets 10mg and sometimes the Percocet 30mg everyday for 8-10 years. The last. 2-3 years I don't even eat them anymore I snort at least 150-250 mg a day. I have sores abscesses, ulcers whatever they're called in my nostrils how do I heal them without seeing a doctor?

Unfortunately snorting pills dries out your sinus which drain and lubricate the mucus membrane and the cartilage within.

If it starts producing mucus and draining there is nothing that will grow in place of any tissue or cartilage lost and damaged, without antibiotics the abscess will continue to remain infected and thus stop any healing process, you have to see a doctor, go to the free clinic or county hospital, but after that many years of abuse permanent damage may be done.

Sorry, I understand and sympathize with you, but denial of needing professional help doesn't solve your problem-and no their not gonna give you any pain meds to aid this.
