Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
Hi there I'm new to this site, and I'm hoping that I can find others out there who I can talk to about skin picking. I'm 22 years old and getting married in August. I have a loving fiance that has been very patient with me and picking. I will pick anywhere on my body. I chew my thumbs I squeeze all pores I can. My breasts are a huge target to squeezing and digging but it's my pubic bone that gets the absolute worst. I shave the hair and then after a day or 2 begin to dig and pull out the hairs that are just below the skin, with tweezers. Once the hair is removed I start to rip and dig out the hair follicle with tweezers, atleast thats what I think it is. It thick and white and bigger with newer hairs. After that something else comes out, nooo idea what it is. Kinda slimey? I'm left with holes in my flesh,my entire pubic bone is covered in round scars and other healing spots. The wost part is that I do eat the follicle... No one knows that one but me. Anyways I'm hoping that I can start talking with others out there. Find support. It's a subject that most people get uncomfortable with, if they can comprehend it at all. Thanks! Looking forward to getting to know some of you.
