**I also tend to put the scabs in a pile, and as embarassing as it is, I also smell my fingers or the scab after the picking. Anyone else do that?

I am a 17 year old guy who experienced this dilemma when i was 14. It all started when i was scratching my head and this scab was stuck to my hair and i could feel it with my fingers, so i took it out and examined it and tasted it and after that it became a habbit but i know a way to stop it. The best thing to do is to keep urself busy,trust me it helps a lot. Secondly if u are a guy get spikes and apply gel or other hair products,this will help you because u will not tend to eat ur scalp if u have gel on it and plus it will ruin ur spikes! Thirdly do not spend time alone as this will only encourage u to pick ur scalp. Hope this helps. It helped me... And i do the same thing lol

Maybe it's just that women speak out about it more? I don't know :P But I think girls are probably affected more because cosmetically it's a pain to cover up, especially teenage girls that really care a lot about how they look, where I think guys are a bit more chill about that sort of thing. Then again I have no idea.
