Excoriation

Postby GoogaMooga » 12 Jun 2019, 17:48

Excoriation - a skin picking disorder. In my case, the irrepressible desire to pick at scabs. I know, I know, since childhood we have been told not to; they'll dry and fall off by themselves. My left elbow (cigarette elbow) initially got calloused, I did not like it, and tried to remove the excess skin, resulting in a scab, and then more excess skin, like padding. This has been going on for a good long time now, and it's only just recently that I have been able to leave it alone, to the point where it almost healed. So sure enough, I got over-confident, and thought, maybe if I just pick really carefully, just the surface, not going too deep - well, it's back to square one!
