Ingrown Hairs OCD
Okay so I am a 22 year old college student with anxiety and ADD. I have this major obsession of searching my legs and arms for ingrown hairs. It started about 4 months ago, now I am covered in scars. I know that when I am anxious & nervous, it alleviates my focus on tweezing them. I used to have open sores from them that I would pick with on a daily basis with a nail clipper causing them all to bleed. I am covered in scars on my face, legs, thighs, arms, elbows, forearms, shoulders, groin and chest region. However, like i said they all used to be fresh open scars but I managed to give them a break for a week causing them to no heal of completely. They are nothing but dark spots. However I still manage to search my legs and tweeze itty bitty hairs that are stuck. So far no marks or major irritation. Anyone else dealing somewhat with this?
