I take medication for anxiety and depression and seem to be in a very good place with my treatment. As a child I continuously picked at my scalp but forgot about it until I recently began again. It started with picking at my legs. My psychiatrist said "just stop" and over time I did. Then the kicker, I started to pick at my scalp, first one place and then more and more. I seem to do it when I am feeling least anxious, go figure? So now what to do. I have tried cutting my nails super short, tying my hair back, promising myself to stop because it actually hurts. Now what?
