Hi, it makes me sad that you didn't write your name, remember that you are more than this. I'm more obsessed with my face and back, but I have a bump in the back of my head that I dig in till I bleed and when it scabs with hairs within it make nauseous. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this, but you are not alone. Love, Michelle

I stumbled upon this site just minutes ago. I didn't know there was a name for compulsive picking or anything. I've been picking at my scalp (and the rest of my body) as long as I can remember. I've had the same spots on my scalp for Years, that I can't seem to leave alone. Right now I have a chunk of hair that's about 6" shorter than the the rest of my hair so it sticks out... It starts with a patch of dry skin or a small pimple and then just, ugh. I have to bounce around to different places ti get my hair cut and make up stories as to why I have a giant scab on my head. I catch myself staying away from people taller than me, making sure I'm never in a position where someone can see the top of my head and for a while would just cut my own hair. I've never told or spoke to anyone about it, but it's comforting to know I'm not the only one.
