Nose picking, help me please

For the last two months I have been picking the blackheads on my nose. I tried to stop multiple times but it doesn't seem to end. Every time I look in the mirror I see pimples I need to pop and I can't stop. I am aware that if I continue I will have scars for the rest of my life. I have been covering the scans with makeup but this cannot go on forever. Please does anybody know a way to stop this? I,am afraid that the damage I have done to my nose is irreversible. Also every time I look in the mirror I want to pop the blackheads. Help

Since the part you pick is only your nose, do you think you can cover it with a clay face mask or maybe one of those nose strips they sell? If you apply it while at home so that you are not tempted to look at the condition of your skin? I would think it can work as a distraction.

I also pick the skin on my nose as that’s a frequent spot for breakouts for me... the biore pore strips do help. My problem is once I pick once, it scabs, and then I have to pick the scab. I use neosporin on the scabs (like a glob of it) because then if I try to pick it it will get all over my hands. Hope this helps for you! Good luck!
