Past history of skin picking

Hi, I was obsessed in childhood if I got burnt I had to absolutely peel the skin so it was of me, I had to have a smooth area, now as an adult I pick scabs on my scalp, I create scabs by picking and its a circle. I find it absolutely soothing to get a scab under my nails and the painful fact of lifting it , its horrible to anyone who doesn't understand

I now exactly how you feel, I have an obsession with picking at anything and everything. Hope it gets better for you! I haven’t tried a lot of things like other people, but I try to refocus my attention to other things so that I am not tempted.
