I went through a stage of taking ecstasy and as a result got acne. Even after given up the ecstasy i still have pimply and congested skin. I'm 100% certain my skin problem was caused by the drugs as i never had a problem before. Apparently, ecstasy can cause breakouts among some users as the drug breaksdown the liver very quickly , so the liver can't deal with all the toxins and they rise to the surface of the skin causing spots. I have tried some antibiotics but without any success. I spoke to my doctor about this and will have a blood test which will show if there any problems with my liver, but will these tests only show serious liver damage? Also if there is a slight problem which is revealed in the test , what would happen next? would i have to take more pills or something like that?Also how long would it take my liver to repair itself so it could work 100% again and so i would stop getting spots?thanks alot
Your next step would probably be a liver biopsy. It is the only true test as to the condition of your liver. I have some experience having been diagnosed with Hep C for the past 3 years. I chart all my bloodwork (at least monthly) during that time and have had 2 liver biopsy's.
