So I’m a 20 year old college student and I’ve been excessively picking at my chest since high school. It started out as a form of self harm during my depression. Even though I’ve cured my depression, the skin picking has developed into a habit. Anytime I look down I just start picking. I’ve tried taking off my glasses so I can’t easily see, but I can’t do that all the time. It’s gotten to a point where I’ve started getting gross sores. I’ve tried putting bandaids on them, but it just softens the scab and peels it off when I change out the bandaids. I can’t even focus on my schoolwork because I just look down and start picking. I’m just sick of it and today I decided to wrap my breasts up in gauze (not binding, just wrapped them up individually) to cover up the damage. Is it ok for me to wrap up my chest so it can heal without me messing it up? How can I heal the sores without the scabs coming off?
