ok, i've read most of the posts here and haven't read about a SINGLE case that resembles mine, so i'm more than a little frustrated.
my picking, if it can be called that, is that i remove the skin of my inner lips and cheeks with my hand. i twist my mouth to all angles with my hand, botton and top lip and bite of the skin with my teeth. i rip it off untill its raw and damaged to an extreme, and very painful. i draw blood, and get these see through little bubbles that are infected and if i'm able, i pop those too.
why am i doing this and how can i stop? is this considered compulsive skin picking?
do i need meds? and if so which ones? phsycotherapy? cognitive behaviour therapy? hypnosis?
god, i wanna stop.
anyone else doing the same?
can anyone give me advice?
