I CANNOT STOP PICKING - I LOOK LIKE I HAVE CHICKEN POX
Posted March 29th, 2010 by Mel
I looked in the mirror today and I look like I have chicken pox from picking so bad. I am 29 years old and believe I started really picking 5 years ago. I will use tweezers, needles, and will dig with my finger nails untill they bleed. Then once they scab I will pick for weeks and weeks until I have a huge scar. Now I started picking my pores on my chest! THere is nothing there but I make them and I now have a open scab that I keep picking on my freaking boob, that is about the size of a pea. I see redness around it so I squeeze until the pus is out and it bleeds. I will pick my husbands back too. I can't stop and I need to so bad. I don't know why I have been so bad. There will be nothing on my face at all, or I will get a zit and then I will squeeze and if it doesn't come I will make it. Then I wil pick and pick. I feel hopeless because I do it so often. I pick at my head too. I will sit in the Mirror for and hour picking, or recently I started tweezing. Now I will pull out my little fine hairs on my face, and then pull the hairs from my bikini line, armpits and anywhere else. I just feel so lost with this. I pull the hairs out so they don't become ingrown and then I pick at it for days and weeks. Just now I reached up to pick at a scab with dry skin. WHen I drive I pick, when I read I pick. I can't stop. Please give me some ideas other then only touching a zit once, or finding something to replace it with, or getting my nails done. Thanks.
