scalp picking

Recently i have started obbsessively picking at my scalp until it bleeds. I then proceed to pick again once a scab has formed. Its very painful for me, especially when brushing and washing my hair and the scabs are starting to show on my scalp too. Does anybody have this or no how i can stop please? xx

You better be carefull with that. You can develop a serious infection. I developed Cellulitis a few years ago due to scratching a scab. It wasn't fun dealing with that infection believe me.

I didn't stop. I actually enjoy it if that sounds weird. I don't pick as much as I use to since I developed the cellulitis. That was scary. I thought I was going to lose my leg.

I still have the habit. Been that way for as long as I remember. My parents use to yell at me for doing it. I notice many people with the same habit.

This may sound gross but I knew a guy that use to pick his nose and put it in his mouth. I once confronted him on it and he had no idea he was doing it. Weird stuff.
