Hi guys! I've been picking my lips for 8 years. The resulting scabs are absolutely disgusting - super thick, hard, and discolored. They even prevent me from eating, smiling, talking properly. I am now underweight and depressed because I cannot smile or laugh without cracking my lips! Anyway, no matter how long I leave them alone (record: one month), the scabs do not heal. I read somewhere that if you pick a scab continuously, it will cease to heal. Is this true?? Can skin "forget" how to heal? I would love to hear your thoughts! Good luck to everyone battling this!
