Hi! I've been a "skin-picker" almost all my life. My parents recall how often my arms and legs were covered in scabs because I wouldn't stop picking. However, my picking moved to my face during middle-school and is something I'm still struggling with today. I'll have good weeks were my face is relatively free of blemishes, but I always end up picking again. I always regret after I pick, but can't seem to stop myself in the moment. Is there any strategies I should try to manage my "relapses" or should I seek out a counseling professional?

Thanks for the tip! I'll look into getting some fidget tools! And look into getting into contact with a counseling professional. :)
