How can I tell if my child is abusing inhalants?
It can be hard to recognize the signs of inhalant abuse. Teenagers who use inhalants may have some of the following signs:
- Chapped lips or face
- Paint stains on their hands and clothes
- Runny nose
- Strange odor on their breath
- Bloodshot eyes
They may complain of headaches, dizziness, trouble remembering things, trouble sleeping or vision problems.
