What are some methods to stop skin picking?
I've learned that compulsive skin picking (like dry skin and scabs) isn't the same as 'cutting' in the sense that the person in question isn't trying to hurt themselves. But it can still be a health concern if sores remain open and get infected. Is anyone else familiar with this problem? And, if so, are there any methods to curb or stop the habit? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
try not to use face watch twice a day and clean your face with water when ever you come from out side. As i am a doctor eat vitamin e capsule and biotin. Use urea 10% cream generic name , that will keep water or ph balance level same for 10 days . Little bit in night. Use not chemical product that found in market. Better use cold cream at night for 7 days. please lat me know. Vitamin e 1 each with biotin 300mcg.
As a specialist in behaviors, I would recommend that you place a rubber band on your wrist and when you find yourself wanting to pick snap the rubber band on your wrist to redirect your thinking. Also, deep breathing seems to help alleviate the urge for compulsive behaviors. Hope this helps.
other than obvious methods to control dry skin like oiling yourself before a bath, use of moisturizers, You could look at self hypnosis, and affirmation. Skin would denote protection and I would say may be an affirmation like"I am safe where I am" could help. the precise affirmation would require interaction.

How do you stop picking at, biting and obsessively clipping your fingernails?I have done this since I was 10 years old, have tried everything and cannot seem to stop. If I don't have a nail clipper nearby, I sort of freak out. Any ideas?
