I found this by mere accident. I have been on a rampage to stop my picking, and because i have had this problem a little over a year, i dont have any scaring exept very very lightly on the back of my arms. But after reading through this site, i realized i have to take care of the wounds when i pick, or i could do bad damage. When i relapsed, i began to put a nerosporined bandaid on each mark, or the particularly bad ones, and only take them off when i go to out of the house. But now, when i feel the urge to pick and find myself sitting in my sink...i dont pick. I have no idea why but...the band-aid is such a barrier. It was the biggest Eureka of my life, and immediatly i wanted to share it. Maybe it will work for you, i really hope it does! And if it doesn't, keep trying, do not quit. So now i take them off in the morning and do my makeup for school, come home, wash my face, mosturize, put on the neosporin or cortizone and band aids on any open wounds that could get infected, or that are particularly damaged, and dont touch it again. I swear. It makes me lose the interest. Maybe just seeing the band aids is a tangible reminder to QUIT. I look silly, and am going through band aids like crazy, but this is really reducing my urges, to the point that i dont find myself having them. I hope it works for you to!
