I think PVA glue works well, also peeling off nail varnish - it comes off easiest after having a shower/bath I've found. You could also get a stress ball. Good luck :)

I'm in the same kind of situation, and it sucks! I've tried prayer beads, pulling at them when I want to pick, smoking (not recommended, but something that I do!) and bubble wrap. None of them are NEARLY as good as picking, but they keep your hands occupied. Let me know if you have any more ideas though...

Not that it's much better, but I've found that plucking leg hairs with a pair of tweezers seems to be a worthwhile distraction that gives a similar 'satisfaction'...if you find yourself doing it too much then you can just shave it all off. I would limit it to that area of the body though. Don't want to start another problem. Or a 'healthier' option might be to just keep the hands busy while you idle around...playing with string, coins, cards, etc.
