Anyone have (or feel like they have) gaping holes for pores from picking?

Dear Holes, you are not alone. Please seek help if you are having suicidal thoughts. I don't want you to die, Holes. I care about you. This community cares about you. I used to have suicidal thoughts too because it seems the skin picking will never end. I found my therapist on this website in the list of providers in the treatment section. Healing is a slow process but it is possible to recover. I'm working on it myself. As for your enlarged pores, you can have a filler like Restylane or collagen injected into the scars or have a chemical peel or do laser treatment. These treatments are done by a cosmetic dermatologist and are expensive. Now you know there are options out there to correct your skin, but it's more important to heal your inside struggles first. Don't give up the fight!

Thanks for your support Lifeisbeautiful. I'm glad to hear you have overcome those overwhelming thoughts. I have researched a lot about possible treatments, and what I have found about enlarged pores from picking, or scarred pores as some call them, there is no very effective treatment to date. Some suggest fractional laser, but there are reports of other pores that were healthy prior becoming damaged and scarred in the process. Right now I'm just taking everything day by day, trying to stop picking so I don't cause further damage, while trying not to look at myself at all, and hoping that I really don't look as bad as what I see in the mirror. I'm starting to really think I have BDD as well, especially from the reaction I get from my girlfriend when I explain to her how I see my reflection.

A <a href="">facial rejuvenation</a> could be an alternative treatment to your problem.

I see holes in my face as well. I'm pretty obsessed with holes - I'll sometimes look for hours at pictures of holes. But I know, deep down, there are no holes in my face. I have pores, but no holes. And I hope you come to realise that as well. You have no holes, it's only the bully in your mind telling you so.
