I have been picking my scalp since I was 15 years old. I have tried everything----naltrexone, hypnotherapy, etc. and at age 45, nothing has worked. Friends and family have noticed off and on over the years but because it is contained to one spot and the spot is not big, it is not noticeable and has not interfered with my professional life. I fear I may still be doing this when I am an old woman. It seems particularly aggravated by my strained marriage. I have been married for 15 years and though my husband is a good man, he has made it clear through both actions and words, that he doesn't really intend to work on the issues that I have repeatedly brought to his attention. This makes me feel powerless and frustrated, and consequently my picking has increased in frequency. I would very much appreciate any suggestions and am grateful for the chance to share my story.
