Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
Hello everyone! I pick my skin (as you can imagine, since I am here!), mostly my calves and shins, but also sometimes the bottom of my feet and my bottom lip. My biggest thing is that I see an "ingrown hair", also known as a normal looking pore, and try to squeeze it out. It finally got the better of me, and I got a fun bacterial infection! So I went to the dermatologist for the first time since I started picking, and he gave me this awesome stuff called Glytone, that has glcolic acid in it. It is a body wash (so I wouldn't use it for your face) that super-exfoliates. Since it isn't mechanical, I won't scrub my skin off, but it makes my legs so soft that I am better able to resist my urges -- even when I want to pick, there is no dead skin or roughness to pick at!
