Bath Salt
An_227144 posted:
Can you please tell me what the side effects are from someone that has used bath salt for an extended period of time. I don't even know what someone looks like when they are doing it but I have seen some physical conditions in some people like painful lumps under the skin i their fingers and I was just wondering is that another type of condition that 2 people could have at the same time when they do out door work and are possibly just caught something from plants. I am concerned ecause they have a very high pain level and the lumps are under the skin and the skin is not been opened.
