It resembles dissociation. Dissociation is often the result of trauma or suppressed feelings. Did you experience a stressful childhood or some sort of traumatic event? I'm very curious about the origin of this skin picking behavior. Personally, I had a difficult childhood riddled with emotional abuse and an unstable household environment. I think the skin picking subconsciously stems from that. Would like to hear other's opinion on this subject.
