I have sunburn on my arms now. I can't pick it- it hurts, and is taut. But soon I know it will peel. And I'll pick that. And it'll hurt. But I'll still pick. Anyone else experience this?

i actually use sunburn as a healing tool, it tans over the scars and when it peels i see the fresh layer underneath as a fresh start and i try not to pick at it. i find that i like the way the new skin feels and looks and it gives me an incentive to keep it that way, i have gone a few weeks without picking this way, im trying to do it again this weekend il let u know how it goes.
