Whenever your mother told you to stop picking at a sore, you probably thought she was being neurotic. If you are this guy, you’ll now wish you had listened.
You’ll probably also be wishing you hadn’t heard of Meth. Yes, this is the scalp of a Meth Head. Our friend got it into his head (no pun intended) that there was a bug crawling under his skin and decided to try to pick it out. Who’s neurotic now?
An unpleasant side effect for some heavy users of Methamphetamines is that they see and feel bugs crawling on their body. They are referred to as crank bugs, meth bugs or ice bugs. The user will dig at their flesh trying to get at the imaginary villain, causing terrible wounds usually to their faces, scalps, arms and legs.
It appears he has dirty fingernails too. His wound has been consumed by infection with the flesh eaten away to expose bare skull. Seriously, who lets something get this bad before going down to casualty. What a moron.
Don’t do drugs, kids. They are bad!
