Patient :I am a teenage girl and I have a habit of picking my scalp. It has been going on for a few years now and it leaves red patches in my scalp and stings when I shower. Online, it says it could be ocd or anxiety- but I'm not sure. Is there any way I can stop myself from doing this? And do you know why I do it? I bite my nails too- not sure if that's related
