The first step to beating Dermatillomania is gaining awareness of your picking patterns

  • Awareness: by using this App you will become more aware of your picking behaviors.
  • Insights: understand your picking patterns – do you pick at certain times of day? Under specific circumstances? What triggers your picking? Answering these questions is important for choosing the right coping methods.
  • Therapy: already seeing a psychologist about your picking? Enhance the therapeutic process by using this App, and share the data with your therapist. Or use it in conjunction with our online therapy program.

How It Works

  • The App allows you to document your picking urges and episodes. Each time you experience an urge/episode, grab your phone and add an entry. You can also add entries retroactively (for example, you can use the App once a day before you go to bed, documenting your behavior for the past day).
  • After using the App for a while, you will have gathered enough data to start seeing patterns in your behavior: whether you pick at specific times of day, due to certain circumstances, etc.
  • Conveniently organized data visualized with graphs and charts makes detecting picking patterns easy.
  • While in therapy, data from the App enhances the therapeutic process. Chances are your therapist asked you to keep a picking log anyway and this App makes it easy and intuitive. Plus, you can share the data with your therapist with the send report feature.
  • It’s totally private. Your data is kept on your phone and is not shared with anyone. You can add additional security by adding a password, so that only you can open the App on your phone.
  • Customize daily or weekly reminders. For example, if you cannot monitor your picking during the day, set a daily reminder to use the App at a certain time in the evening.


We created this App for our clients (who enroll in the online therapy program). However, we decided to give it away for free to anyone out there who is undergoing therapy for their skin picking.

No, this App is Ad-free.

Certainly! One of the main reasons we decided to give it away for free is for the benefit of people who undergo CBT and are required to keep a picking log.

Exactly what I was looking for. Way better than lugging around a paper diary!

What this App is NOT

This App is not therapy in and of itself. Although there are many therapeutic benefits, it cannot and does not replace treatment with a qualified professional. If you are looking for treatment, please consider our online therapy program. This monitoring App was designed specifically for our online therapy program clients. Expect the best results by using it in conjunction with the program.
