Has anyone tried chapstick?

I have been picking for roughly six years now. My spot of choice is the skin between my thumb and index finger on my left hand. For the past several days I have been applying chapstick to this area and so far it has helped me stop picking at it for several hours. Has anyone on this site had any success with using chapstick?

if i use it on my lips there's less of a chance i'll pick my lips. as with any kind of moisturizer on any other part of your body that keeps your skin from being uneven there's less of a chance to pick so if it works for you even for a few hours, see if you can eventually make it work for the whole day and if you regress, don't beat yourself up about it and just start over and try again.
