The following set of questions is designed to help you get a better idea of whether or not you exhibit signs of Dermatillomania and if you do, how severe they are.
Answer the questions based on your skin picking behavior in the past week (7 days). Choose the response that is most relevant to your situation. If you are unsure about any of the questions, please estimate to the best of your ability.
This questionnaire is adapted from various psychometric tests such as the Hair pulling scale (Massachusetts general hospital), the NIMH Trichotillomania Sympton Severity Scale (NIMH-TSS), and other BFRB scales such as Milwaukee Inventory for the Dimensions of Adult Skin Picking (MIDA) (Walther,Flessner, Conelea and Woods, 2009) and the Skin Picking Scale-Revised (Snorrason, Olafsson, Flessner, Keuthen, Franklin and Woods, 2012). This questionnaire is not exhaustive and is not meant to replace a comprehensive assessment by a qualified mental health professional. Also, it is important to differentiate between Dermatillomania, which is a psychological condition, to medical conditions. Consult a doctor for medical examination if you are uncertain.
