My sister had some bad acne at one point and she had a lot of tools for it. One of them caught my eye and has literally made my picking even worse. The one I took and still have is like this pimple tool where one end is like a loop meant for popping pimples and then the other is just a really sharp needle. I have naturally good skin and now it's constantly inflamed because I never stop messing with my skin. When I get a pimple I pop it immediately and then keep poking at it and messing with it to the point where it is an open wound on my face. When my skin is raised or swollen from me touching it too much i just poke it with the needle until i feel it pierce through in a raised area. I know me having this tool is really not good and iv'e probably already done damage with it and most likely will continue to do so. I had a bump on the inside of my ear one time and i messed with it so much that the whole inside of my ear was filled with swollen red irritated bumps and dried pus. I literally could not wear earbuds like putting anything even just a pinky finger slightly into my ear would manage to painfully pop or damage some of the skin and pus and blood came out. I know this is like super gross (especially because i eat whatever I pick) but theres no way I could have done this damage without the tool and I still have it I just don't get rid of it. I know I should give it to someone and make sure I can't use it because the last thing I need is more scarring but I just dont. It doesn't even feel like I can't do it I just dont do it for whatever reason. My pain tolerance is high and picking rarely hurts to me but sometimes I go under scabs with the needle side and try to rip the scab off from the bottome but this usually doesn't work and I just end up in pain I don't know what to do im so ashamed of my habit not even my closest friends who I would trust with my life know even half of the extent my picking goes to..
