Scalp picking?

I have picked at my scalp for almost 30 years. It has been particularly bad for the last 2, though. I have 6-9 spots on my scalp and they range from about 1 cm in diameter to larger than a half-dollar. Anyone else have this same issue?

Hey my scalp is where the majority of my skin picking happens. I'm a 31 year old mother of two and I've been doing it since I was a child myself. The past couple years have been extremely bad for myself as well. Now the past few months it has been so bad that I honestly feel like there isn't a part of my scalp that doesn't have a scab or open wound on it. I also have ADHD and depression and anxiety among other things... right now I am going to try Prozac to see if it helps at all. Just started this weekend though, still on the lowest dose.

Yes; i do it too. My Ouchies are bleeding now... i have like 15 raw ones and some other ones that are scabbed over but i will probably get those too... i HATE that i pick them.. it hurts but feels good at the same time. And once i pick them i chew on the scabs...
