picking pores!

hey everyone, Im new to this but i came across this website a few weeks ago and i just wondered if there is anyone else that does the same thing as me, for as long as i can remember i have been picking at my pores on my face just using my normal natural nails i used to see my mum do it but not all the time, but it wasn't till i done a beauty course 3 years ago that it became a regular everyday thing. i now everyday, before i have a bath i have to pick the dirt out of all my pores on my face and chest and if i don't i feel dirty and unclean and i cant bring my self to put clean clothes on if i don't do it i now use tweezers and acrylic nails, its awful and seriously has an effect on my life, because i done a beauty course every time we used to do facials we had to find and pick blackheads on are partners faces and that was part of the routine, there was no way of getting out of it. and i think that's what started it off, and i really don't know what to do i don't know if i have ocd or just going mad its driving me crazy and i just would like some opinions please help! thank you xx
