Whats wrong with me?

Every day i scratch and pick at my legs. I think it may be anxiety related, but am not sure. I'm a 13 year old girl and can't seem to quit. Now i have small scares around my legs that i usually try to cover with knee socks.

  • Skin picking is actually common and considered a form of obsessive-compulsive behavior. It can harm you and have a significant impact, so you should get help from a therapist to help you break the habit.

  • Also try other methods to calm yourslef, i rubb my fingers together on my jeans witch seems to help. i dont think u need to pinch yourself, but then again anxiety is something i cant control either.

  • If you can, talk to you mom and maybe your doctor. Also, a therapist might help you find the cause and have ways to overcome this.

  • I do the very same thing and have scars on my legs, too. Therapist would probably put you on anti-anxiety medication for this.
