Hi. This is my first time on this site. I have been suffering with skin picking since my teen age years. I was also diagnosed with OCD a deadly combination. I find a that most of my skin picking happens when I have some anxiety happening in my life. I have a non supportive husband and that makes everything worse. Just stop picking he says. Believe me I would if I could. He just doesn't understand how hard it is and I feel that I have no one to talk to. No one understands. I am so glad that I found this site. I was thinking that there is no one like me. I find that I pick the most when stand in front of my enlarged mirror 12x. This mirror lets me find little I mean little cystic pimples and I squeeze and pick until they are a big red wound on my face. I then find a couple more and then more and so on until my whole face has open wounds on it. Then I try everything to help them to heal. I read a post that you need to moisturize them. Well I am afraid to put moisturizer on them. Afraid that it will make my skin too oily causing more little cystic pimples. It feels like that I cannot win. This morning my wounds were in the scab phase. I picked one just to see if it would bleed. Well it didn't. So I picked another and then another and so on until the scabs were all picked off. I get so mad at myself for doing this. It is a vicious cycle. Now I have to try to hide them under makeup. Will it ever end??????
