Thanks so much for sharing. I will try this oil. I pick at my arms and just started a spot on my leg. I will try this oil in order to ward off a new problem area. Thanks again.

Thanks for sharing. I can really relate - I'm always looking for new creams and loitions to help with my scars. I started picking/popping/squeezing at six and I'm 30 years old and I pick everywhere on my body. I pick anywhere I can reach, sometimes for hours, and I pull my hair from my legs, chest, stomach, pubic area, and anywhere else I see "imperfections" I also pick my scalp and have had several very bad infections. I tried EVERYTHING to stop and over the years it's only gotten worse. I've tried cog behavior therapy, habit reversal therapy, talk therapy, blockers, abstinence, group therapy, online programs (not free) and every SSRI on the market. However, I recently found a 12 step group for skin pickers and now have HOPE and people I can reach out to for support. I have experienced repreive from my picking as I never have before! Today, I'm not facing this devistating illness alone and I no longer have to "figure it out." It's a HUGE relief and I have seen MIRACLES of healing and recovery. Please call in if you need support.

By the way, I pick my legs too. Thank you for posting this. Very often I feel so weird, crazy and alone. It's also devistating when summer rolls around because I can't wear the clothes I want to because I'm always so self concious about my picking and scars - and the stress over this triggers my anxiety and loathing - which triggers more picking! Can you relate to this? This disease is truly cunning, baffling and powerful.
