    Since 1998, I have been picking my scalp on a

    (almost) daily basis. The only time in 15 years that I did not pick it is when I had fake nails and the sensation was undesirable. I don't even know why I pick it, but I really enjoy when it's dry and I can dig with my fingernails to pick out the dry flakes. It's one of the...

    I'm addicted to picking my scalp.

    That's the whole reason I signed up for this app... & honestly, so far I'm glad I did☺️ anyway, I started about 7 years ago. I had a dry scalp then, and began to develop dandruff; I was really self conscious about it, so I began to pick it off. After that, I just couldn't...

    Skin Picking

    I pick at my skin until it hurts. I've been doing it since i was little and it seems to get worse when i'm upset or anxious. I like the pain because it seems to be the only thing that calms me down. How do i stop doing this because it is really gross?
