Tweezing hairs for ingrown hairs/infected follicles

I have a habit of going from popping pimples to tweeting hairs that appear to be in an infected follicle. I can't stop until I pull a hair that comes out with a white plug on the end. When this is at its worse I end up with a bald spot in my beard, which is unfortunate because I have a sweet beard. I have had to shave my beard and start over because of this. I have gotten this somewhat under control but I still pick at my scalp creating scabs that just don't go away. I don't know why I am posting but it feels good to have somewhere to talk about. it. I suffer from bipolar depression and this behavior is at its worse when I am depressed.
