Exams making things worse

got exams coming up. However much I try not to stress, apparently my skin picking doesn't want to be anything other than full on. And trying to revise while feeling down and painful isn't helping. Ugggh!

I am the same. I am picking my fingers/lips so bad! I can't stop either. my fingers are all really sore and my lips are too. I only have one exam tomorrow and i am not worried or stressed or nervous but still picking really bad. I find in the summer my picking gets better because my hands are distracted and so i can go swimming :D If not it hurts too much to put my hands in water :( . Good luck with you picking and with your exams. ps. you may want to wear mittins or gloves or something on your hands to help till exams are done. (thats what i was doing for a while but i forgot a couple days)

Thanks :) I'm not too worried about my exams either, but my hands don't seem to know that!! Gloves is a good idea - I'll try that if I'm working somewhere no one will see..! Good luck with yours too :) I love how this site makes me feel a bit less hopeless about the whole thing. Good to know I'm not the only one!
