You have trichotillomania:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricho-tillomania
Its a variant of obsessive compulsive disorder and can be treated with medications used for obsessive compulsive disorder. Look up that condition from that link I gave you or in general on the web and speak to a psychiatrist about it. Its treatable.

Yes I agree with ILADVOCATE.  
I know someone who suffers from this and the meds helped.
