Hello, I just recently found this site about an hour ago have been reading all the posts. I have been picking and eating my scabs since I was 8 or 9, and I'm now 29. My twin sister and I both have this skin picking disease, and my siblings all bite and chew their nails, but they don't pick scabs, it's just my sister and I. I am really surprised that there's a name for this condition and that is so common. Well, more common than I thought. I noticed some people mentioned white bumps under the scab, which I've never really noticed before. I just know that every single piece of scab has to be picked off and eaten or I'm not satisfied. If i pick a scab and I drop it, I will find it, and if I don't, it almost upsets me. Can anyone else relate to these things?
