Hello Everybody! I have been coming back and forth to this website for a while now, but haven't decided to post anything up until now. See, I too am a skin picker. It started with the skin around my lips when I was 10 years old and now it has spread to certain areas on my face, arms, nape/scalp area and most recently, my left ear lobe. I have 3 main sores that I continue to pick and one day I caught myself picking without realizing I had been picking. It was almost like I snapped out of a trance or something and made myself stop. It has been so hard for me to stop. I analyze every single piece of skin I pick too, which is just strange I guess especially because each piece I pick off has these little spores it. I find those little spores fascinating, why I don't know. I find myself picking until I bleed and as the skin tries desperately to heal itself, here I come picking at it again a day or two later! I have to stop this madness, I really do and I am finally going to get help. I have Dermatillomania and I am SICK OF IT!
