BFRPs (body-focused repetitive behaviors) is the technical term. I’m a biter, pincher, and picker. Definitely compulsive behavior, not a habit.
So picking on my poor fingernails and hangnails would be considered an OCD, right? My nails are so thin and frail. If only my toenails and fingernails could switch places. Then that would be okay
Yeah! I pick my scalp and I guess maybe it's associated with OCD? It's not debilitating though
Yup, I do it almost everyday. It’s called dermatillomania. I do it when I’m stressed out as well and I do it out of bordem because I’m so used to doing it. Sometimes I have to put vaseline on my scalp every night before going to bed. It can really hurt because of the bleeding and soreness so I know exactly how you feel.
