Interesting question!
by: Debbie Wicker

I'm fascinated by your question because your concerned about what happens is the heroin misses the vein but not asking about what happens when the heroin goes into the vein.

If heroin misses the vein it goes underneath the skin where it was shot it can cause a severe infection as the body tries to get rid of a foreign substance. If a lump forms it can become severely infected and cause major problems including amputation.

The real question you should be asking is what happens when one gram of heroin is shot into the vein. Heroin causes addiction and if left untreated is a fatal disease. Only 30% of people addicted to heroin survive the disease of addiction.

I recommend who ever is shooting heroin go to the hospital ER for the lump caused by missing the vein but also go to begin the process of getting the treatment for the heroin addiction, which is the significantly worse problem of the two mentioned.

I further recommend that the addict go to NA or AA meetings DAILY starting today and learn how to get rid of their heroin addiction.


Good Luck!
