thought it was a blackhead, but it's a bunch of tangled fibers

Weird disease? While cleansing my skin (oil cleansing method), I eventually pulled out what I thought were blackheads, but were actually a mass of black fibers tangled together (too thin for hair). Since noticing this, I realize that some of the blackheads my skin releases appear to be these same fibers. The only thing I can find online is Morgellons disease, but I don't have the feeling of bugs crawling under my skin, and I don't have lesions. Any ideas? [more inside]

The sun turns me into The Fly.

YANMD, but MD(ermatologist) can't see me until October (!), thanks to some excellent health insurance. Last summer I started, seemingly out of nowhere, having a very odd and very severe reaction to the sun on my face - whiteheads, all over, almost literally in crops all over my face. If you picture a person's skin being almost completely swapped for whiteheads, that's along the lines of what I had (not on eyelids, etc, but it hurt and felt horrific). It might be getting worse, I can't get to see a dermatologist, and I work outside in the summers - is there any help for me this summer? [more inside]

Meth addicts have terrible skin

I'm not a pharmacist or organic chemist or pharmacologist, so I'm confused by the difference between methamphetamine and Adderall, and the side effects it may wreak on the body long-term. I've tried to figure it out using Google, but it's all sort of over my head, and I don't know if the people on those chatboards are reliable sources of information. [more inside]
