One day after smoking weed my face instantly broke out, mostly around my mouth.

old pimples,cuts and scrapes around my face, hands and arms became new again! I was scared for my life. I went to the doctor and he didn't know what it was. The red bumps on my face where there for
over a month and left scars. I left it at
that and haven't smoked much weed since.
then afraid of getting the same breakout.

The funny thing is that it happened again
today randomley! Without smoking weed.
this time not as bad but still noticeable. Old
pimples, cuts and scrapes become new again! Please...if you know what it could be please tell me.

From where they're located, it sounds like you skin may be irritated by the smoke. There's no evidence that pimples have anything to do with diet. To see if it's the smoke, bake some weed in cookies and eat it. If the reaction returns, you're allergic to THC. If not, it's likely irritation from the resin in the smoke.

I might have figured it out, I got my first symptoms for the mono I had like 2 days after that, and when you get mono, it's dormant in your body for atleast two weeks before you show symptoms, so this could also be a factor, it's just weird guys. It could have been a weird form of mono rash, maybe triggered by the weed ir something like that.
That day I somoked two joints and got fried, I hopped in the shower five minutes later, washed up, and when I was washing my face, I felt like 25+ red bumps within 2inches of my mouth, and the inside of my mouth was swollen so I had a little anxiety attack and now I hate smoking weed.
Idfk, I think it's related to mono.
Well this can go either way. There's a 50/50 chance that your breakout was related to the marijuana, or that it was just a coincidence. With all the varying affects marijuana has on people, there's a possibility that it made your testosterone levels spike, resulting in you breaking out. It could be related to something else in your life though, I don't really know you well enough to say for sure.

thanks man, but its definetely weed, ive smoked a few times and got more pimples and even cold sores on my mouth.
Well in that case, you're probably (as weird as this will sound) allergic to marijuana. Actually you're probably allergic to THC, but that's in marijuana.
I know that's what I've been getting at. I just wish it wasn't true haha. If that is the case it developed over time, I've been smoking weed since 8th grade. I'm a junior now. It happened like two months ago. It's fucked right?
Not at all. That's the thing about allergies, they can come and go at any time what so ever. You never know when you're going to be allergic to what. You could become allergic to copper right now, and then stop being allergic to it in an hour. It's just how it works.
It could also just be cold sores. It seems that lots of people complain about getting more frequent cold sores when they smoke weed, and cold sores can also develop any other time that your immune system is weak.

Cold sores can also develop on fingers and elsewhere on the body - they like broken skin so they could develop over a small cut.

theyre gone now but they werend cold sores they were like pimples without white or black heads and smaller. whenever I get acne its usually in the same place
It COULD be stress involved... Most likely it's one of the above... but just a thought? Weed relaxes you. Maybe you shouldn't smoke for a little bit and start again after you aren't stressed? If you're stressed at all?

Hello to every body,
I have to proclaim that there is a certain cure for these kind of rashes, as one of our friends wrote obove these breakouts are not just because of smoking weed but smoking weed or tobacco makes it worse and helps them to grow quickly, get more painful and lasting more than two or three weeks with leaving scars.
The cure is an organic drink and heals these breakouts in the first day of consumption.
There is also a diet that is gonna stop these breakouts forever.
