Hi... My ex-husband used to do this... and as strange as it sounds, our 8-year old son does it as well - even though he doesn't live with his dad and has never seen him do it. In a lot of cases, skin picking (and similar issues, like yours) stem from anxiety and/or avoidance. Do you find yourself doing this at a certain time everyday or during a certain activity (watching TV, etc.)?
