Scars of Shame is the first documentary featuring dermatillomania. The documentary depicts BFRB awareness advocate Angela Hartlin years back, as a brave and passionate person.
Dermatillomania, commonly known as Skin Picking Disorder (SPD), is classified as a Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviour (BFRB). It is a serious disorder where a person is plagued with the urge to pick at skin on the legs, arms, chests or anywhere on the body including the face.
Body – focused repetitive behaviours (BFRBs) such as chronic hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting were in essence always thought to be ‘nervous habits.
People that suffer from dermatillomina or Skin Picking Disorder (SPD) exhibit symptoms that include repetitive touching, rubbing, scratching, picking at and digging into their skin.
In this clip we see an excoriation disorder sufferer, Angela Hartlin, who has come to terms with the effect that her condition is having on her body.
