It all started when one day my mom was putting me to bed. I was in my bed and she said that she had noticed that my brother and I had these pimples on our legs. She told me that she could make them disappear, my skin would just be red for a couple days. I made the mistake of saying yes. That was the end of third grade.After this incident I found myself picking viciously at any bump, no matter how miniscule it was, on my leg. Sometimes for hours I would sit on the ground in my room and tilt my leg to the sunlight to see the tiny shadow of a bump. Usually there was no pus or anything like that. It just became a scar after I picked at the same spot more than once. Then, a few years later, I started picking even more horribly at my arms, and I still do now, in 7th grade (almost 8th) and now I have started agian at my legs, and even my face now.I try not to show my upper arms in public, which are by far the worst, but my gym uniform doesn't allow that. I need a way to stop this kind of picking, and it seems that there aren't many people in the same boat as me. PLEASE HELP if you know a way to stop it. My arms are almost completely covered with white round scars and more red dots for recent picking. I need a way to stop so I can be normal.
