I'm a 25 year old female. I am just now realizing I really might have a problem. I have picked my skin since childhood. When I would get mosquito bites I would scratch until I would bleed and then I would pick the scabs over and over and over. When I would have a fight with my parents I would scratch in my hair until the spot would bleed. As a teenager I would spend hours in the bathroom picking my ance. In response to being upset it would be a relief. Its to the point now in my adult like that I cannot NOT pick. I get small bumps on the back of my arms and I pick at them when I am at work with out even knowing that I do it. Same with my back, chest, and my face. Do I fit the bill for this "Skin Picking Disorder" If so ... where do I start to get help? I never really realized there was something wrong with it. It has bothered me my whole life and I would LOVE to stop the habit. Please advise !
