Cocaine related hallunications

Classically is the sensation of animal, bugs or insects moving under the skin (cocaine bugs or parasitosis). Other purely visual hallucinations that can occur include "snow lights" or the sensation of sunlight reflecting off snow crystals. Vibrating and pulsating geometric shapes, polyopia, and dysmorphia occur and resemble visual aura. Olfactory, tactile and gustatory hallucinations may occur. Photophobia, halos around lights, and gtrouble focusing may be due instead to pupillary mydriasis due to increased sympathetic tone.
