To quit. Dermatillomania is too compulsive, and somewhat pleasing to victims of this condition that no one will stop... Those who have been doing it for years find it the hardest to quit. It's comforting, It's almost a good pain.
I'm 19, Female, and have been picking and eating the skin from my fingers since I was 6 years old.
They are red, swollen, unsightly, and but a big damper in my life.
I also was picking at my fingers while I write this...forcing myself to type with one hand.
