If you are not currently using psychotropic drugs, try taking 5-HTP supplement. 100 milligrams daily with food. It naturally helps to increase seratonin in the brain. I've been taking it for two weeks and feel better...it cushions the angry feeling of self hatred which is so prevalent among skin pickers. It's also been making me somewhat less interesting in picking. As if it's not worth it. I began seeing the results only recently after two weeks of daily use. Still need to give it time to see the full effects. I also find myself to be slightly more optimistic and happier than before. Just don't take it if you are currently on any prescription psychiatric meds.
