Patient :I have dermatilliomania, where i excessively squeeze by skin. I have never felt so bad about it before, it makes me want to never be seen, which of course is a problem as i am still in education. i am waiting for an appointment with a councillor. however, other than the obvious ways to not pick (avoid mirror etc), what can i do that will really help stop me clawing at my skin?
