legs and lips skin picking.

I have picked at the skin on my lips and legs for about 20 years. At the moment my lips are a disgrace and my legs are full of scabs and red marks. They just get so dry which starts the cycle all over again and makes me pick. Can someone recommend a good cream to try to help with the marks and healing? Also, any tips on how to stop this would be fantastic.

I haven't picked at legs for 2 days so am proud, but have picked lips and skin around my nose, so not good!

this sounds all most to simple to be true, but i used to pick at my pubic area so bad. it was covered in scars and scabs and one day i found this lotion, just walmart brand, its in a big bronzeish bottle and called "equate cocoa butter conditioning body lotion" it has vitamin e in it which has always been helpful for me in the healing of scars, but anyways.. i did all i could to stop picking at it (including growing the hair out so the wounds would be less visible) and rubbed this lotion on the area every morning and night. within the month the scars were faded to little pink dots and today (about 3 months later) its as perfect looking as ever! the lotion is VERY cheap and good smelling. i hope you give it a shot ! good luck

Thank you very much for your reply, this problem is a nightmare!! I live in Britain so we don't have Walmart but I will try to find an alternative. Thank you again.
