Skin picking may start with something mild and harmless but if not treated early it can escalate into a serious clinical condition. When it starts affecting a person’s physical health and/or emotional well-being, it means professional help is needed.
The severity of skin picking differs for everyone. For some it can be so severe that is causes severe scarring and sometimes even infection.
