Skin Picking - Chicago Families

Hello, Everyone! I'm 24 years old and suffer from compulsive skin picking disorder. I'm currently writing an article in Chicago regarding CSP in children, and I'm interested in interviewing a family of a child with CSP. I'm reaching out to you, with hope that you might know of a family who may be willing to speak with me. If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in speaking with me, please contact me at Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you! ~Marianne

well, I myself suffer from CSP but I am not sure about my five year old son. I think he may have CSP disorder. He defenitly picks at whatever he can. Like his bug bites. He does not just scratch them. He digs at them. The other night I put 9 or 10 bandaids on him because he had that many open wounds. I am scared that he will eventually get as bad as me. I am not sure if this is really what you are looking for but I think it is great that you are writing an article on CSP disorder. I think the general public and the medical world needs to know more!
