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?
