I would like to try my absolute best on my own to stop before seeking medical attention. Areas I pick (listed be severity) Private region Fingers Face Scalp Very embarassing for me to admit that I pick at my Private region but I need to be honest and I hope I can help people Who have similar issues. My private region is the most concerning for me. I think I do it because it's easily concealable and because the way the hair grows there it Causes bumps which has improved from havin laser hair Removal on the bikini line. The past few days have been very bad for me as I have been stressed about a job interview I have tomorrow. Stress is a definite trigger for me. I plan to start a log tomorrow so I will check back in then and start my Journey one day at a time.
