I scar myself
I can't leave myself alone whenever I get zits. I always have to pick each one I get several times, because there's just something so irresistible about picking dry, scabby skin. Because of this, I usually make what were initially small holes into bigger more raw holes, and sometimes all that picking in one spot leaves me with a scar that takes ages and ages to fade away. Sometimes they don't fade entirely.
This is a very nervous habit. If I didn't do this, then I'd pick all my fingernails off. I finally grew fingernails and they're nice. But now I keep scarring myself up with repeated picking of zits.
Has anyone else ever heard of this problem or have this problem too? All I ever see are confessions of cutting on this site. But not about compulsive picking.
