How can I prevent infections?
Posted December 19th, 2011 by shirtyberty
Hi, I'm 13 and I've been picking my skin for as long as I can remember. Recently, my mum's friend got an infection in her arm from a cut she got in the garden. She was in hospital for a week and her arm was all swollen. The main places I pick are my lips and fingers, so it would be awful if I got an infection there! Anyone know how I can stop myself getting an infection, because stopping picking altogether seems a bit ambitious at the moment.
