Hi, I'm a picaholic

I was researching what the hard white bumps are under my facial scabs, when I found this site. I didn't know there was a name for what I do, but now I do and I'm SO happy I'm not alone in this. I already read about the OCM and started doing it 2 days ago. I must say, my skin looks easily 50% better! So what do I do? Yeah....I pick the healing scabs. Now I look like an overweight tweaked again. (sigh) Anyway, just saying hi - I'll be back! :)

That's what gets me everytime the dreaded healing scab. I think if I take it off it will look so much better.....but no it always looks ... 10 times wworse and red and raw. Then I got to start all over again. Not this time...I am leaving it alone.

Me too...I've had scabs so close to being healed before, that once I took them off my skin looked normal underneath...problem is I keep doing it and keep doing it...and can't seem to get it through my thick skull that it is just making it worse. :/
