my daughter had to leave school early because she says a boy smells like burnt chemicals, kind of like cigarettes but really a lot worse. She said it was so bad just from him walking by her she got a headache and felt sick.

My guess is crack or meth but of ocurse i have never smelled either. Does anyone know if the smell of a drug like this could make a passer by feel ill?

I have notified the guidance counselor.

They say if a kid smells like ammonia or ether, it's a red flag for meth being cooked or smoked in the house.

I have always heard that meth smells like cat urine.  IDK for sure though.  From watching intervention and seeing how the drugs are used I would guess that someone is smoking or cooking something around the child.  how old are we talking here?  I am assuming that they are young and the child isn't using himself. 

On the other hand maybe he was around a fire that had garbage burning.  i know that can smell awful and make you sick.  Especially  if there was plastic or stryofoam tossed in there.

Thank you for clearing that up.  I can't remember what show I heard that on I think it was dog the Bounty Hunter.  I was thinking why would someone do meth if it smells like that when there is other stuff out there that isn't that nasty smelling.

When I was a teacher a kid used to come to class smelling like propane.  His house wasn't warm enough in the winter so his parents put a propane heater in his room.  Even his homework smelled like it.  There could be a lot of reasons why this kid smells funny.  It might even be mothballs or another innocent source that your daughter is just not familiar with.  You did good notifying the counselor.  Let them decide if there's a problem and what to do about it.

I asked my husband this morning but I forgot about the burnt chemical thing so I"m going to ask again but he said his best guess would be weed. As for meth, he said the smell depends on what chemicals is being used to make it but it generally smells like ammonia. (he's a deputy, currently training to handle clandestine labs aka meth labs)
