Default Skin picking

Whenever I have small scaps I can't seem to stop picking them, this leads to many wound scarring on my body in any place (which doesn't look too bad kinda like a birthmark).

My worst pick is in my scalp, I realized whenever I'm stressed I start to pick my scalp a lot more. When I was on a very stressful placement, I used to pick this wound on my head every day, just waiting for the blood/fluid to clot then i would do it again. EVen if it was verypainful id still try to do it. thank god I managed to do it in somewhere that's not obvious. but there are times it looks very red and blood oozing out also.

Anyone ever felt that way? it feels so satisfying when after I pick it somehow

I can definitely identify with you but in my case, the situation is too difficult to talk about. I hope you I will be able to talk about it some day. My heart goes out to you!
