Excoriation (skin picking) Disorder

Individuals with skin picking disorder are unable to stop picking at their skin. Picking is usually done with their fingers, fingernails, teeth or with tools such as tweezers, pins, or scissors. Most people pick at their skin from time to time, but you may have skin picking disorder if you:

  • Are unable to stop.
  • Continue picking even when your skin is bleeding or bruised.
  • Try to make moles, freckles or spots “perfect” or “smooth”.
  • Are not aware that you are picking.
  • Pick as a means of relieving stress.
