I have only recently discovered that my disgusting habit has a name - Dermatophagia. I was encouraged after reading a post on here from a British guy - LondonJason as I am British too and live in London. It is so comforting to know that others are going through the same thing. I am not in a great place in my life which means my Dermatophagia is really bad at the moment. My worst areas are my right thumb - to the point I cant hold a pen or bend my thumb in and all my other fingers. A recent new development is my heels which I'm very ashamed to say. Sometimes they are so bad I find it really sore to walk! I really want to make tracks to get help to stop becuase I feel so disgusted when I look at my hands and feet.
