Hello there, embarrassing as it is, I have picked there as well. Definitely not nearly as bad as you have done it, but I have. I've got scars on the backs of my arms from picking as well. You aren't crazy, I promise. I feel you completely. I get stressed too about my body once I've picked, it's almost like I'm wound up and I need release. And unfortunately for people like us picking is our release. I too pick at my chest. Any area of my body that there looks to be a clogged pore I push and I squeeze at it until whatever is in there comes out. Not the greatest thing, but that's what I have a problem with. Do you do the same?

You're not alone. I've done this on and off over the years. It's stressful to have the area inflamed from picking at it and you want it to go away, but can't stop picking at it so it just makes it worse. Honestly how I've learned to leave them alone is focusing on another part of my body. Not very healthy but *shrugs*

Thanks for your comments :) wonderfully helpless, yes I pick all over my body. Mostly back, chest, butt, and intimate area.. why I attacked my intimate area was because I shaved and due to ingrowns and razor burn I picked every little bump I could feel. I’m now healing and scabbing, which I’m obsessively picking at. Most nights I try wear gloves to sleep because when I’m half asleep is when my picking is the worst. Feeling very hopeless right now

Torianrayne, No problem. :) I had the same problem. But don't give up hope, I completely understand feeling helpless. I get that same feeling when I completely destroy my skin from a round of intense pushing and picking. Would you like to talk one-on-one? I'd love to share some of my methods for coping with you. Although I'm not completely "cured" yet, I'd like to help as best I can. Always here to help because I know that feeling when you feel that no one understands/is on your side :) If you'd like, you can email me anytime at odessac282@gmail.com.

I've also got some tips for shaving and preventing ingrowns and especially razor bumps. I have extremely sensitive skin prone to eczema and it works for me so it should work for you too.
