Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroid (although I'm still getting tested for Hashimoto's, polycystic ovarian syndrome, etc). I've noticed since my symptoms have progressed I have become a lot more compulsive with my skin picking. I used to have flawless skin and now I have to wear long sleeve shirts in the summer because I'm so embarrassed about how my arms look with all the tiny little circular scars. I keep telling people it's a rash but my last session was the worst I've ever done to myself. I had to go to rite aide to get hydrogen peroxide, cocoa butter extract, healing moisturizer, and cetaphil wash and lotion. I've already begun scarring myself but figured it would be the last time I picked. But now when I pick, 5 minutes to me is actually 5+ hours in real life. Does anyone have any advise? I've never done this to myself before and I'm scared.
