I manage to leave my arms mostly alone (the scars that I've already made are fading,) and I do EVERYTHING I can--including channel that energy to my shins, to leave them alone. My legs are a hideous mess. All began with ingrowns and KP. But don't ever feel alone. Something like 80% of us pickers started due to a pre-existing skin condition. stay on here and talk to people. It's kind of amazing.
