scalp and feet

I've been lurking here for a few months. My areas are typically my feet and my scalp, so no one knows about it. It always starts with messing with some minor imperfection. I had it under control until early summer when I got started with my feet again. My feet are only healing up now because I got started on my scalp about a week ago.

I pick at my feet sometimes because I do ballet and I have a lot of callouses. And I've been picking at the same wounds on my scalp since June. I will not let them heal. I also pick my face back chest arms fingers and ears too. Anyway long story short, I get it.

I think I found a solution to at least get my current scalp flare up under control. I'd been using T-gel shampoo to heal it, but yesterday I lathered it up and put a shower cap on and let it soak a good 10 minutes. Then I trimmed my nails pretty short and spent the day running errands. It's almost completely healed up and since my nails were short I couldn't really start in on another area like I usually do.
