I'm honestly not sure. I'm thinking it could just me being a hypochondriach.
I'm 16. I've been picking my scabs for as long as I can remember. I can't remember what triggered it, but there must have been something.I've always been known to be quite the perfectionist. I also still pick my nose (and eat it....) and pick/chew my nails. The nails aren't severe. I've stopped actually swallowing the nail I chew. I spit it out. I pick at my toe nails too. Dry skin on my hands and feet I'll peal and pick at too.
None of it is ever really extreme though. Of course wearing shorts is slightly embarressing and when I wear a skirt, nylons are a must. I'm afraid of bathing suit season now that I discovered the acne on my back to pick at, but other than those scars, it's not like I'm cover in scabs or I pick the skin itself.
I just don't know if it's all stupid habbits, or what's up...
I don't fit many of the characteristics, but I still fit a fair amount.
