View Full Version : A form of OCD, Dermatophagia

It's horrible. You pick at your fingers/feet, pulling off skin. Sometimes eating it. It can get infected, or just plain out hurt. Typing, eating potato chips, touching hot stuff. All those hurt. OCD isn't only symmetry, and such. Some people don't understand. The reason I do this is because the skin I pick off makes my fingers feel uneven. So I pick it off. It makes it worse. Thoughts?

I've never heard of that before. How does it make your fingers feel uneven? Does it hurt to touch something soft like a sofa after you've bit your skin?
