obsessive behavior

I am 30years old and have this obsessive behavior of picking my face. EX. pimples, blackheads, hairs and thing that I think dont belong. I pick my eyebrows and have even started picking my husband if he'll let me. I pick the hairs out of his beard. They arent long hairs they are the very tiny pieces just breaking through the skin. I even tweeze out my pubic hairs to bald spots.I feel like I cannot stop. everyday I tear my face apart poping pimples and things that havent even begun to come out yet. I feel crazy. Is there a treatment for this?

Yes, this is a form of ocd, and there is both medication and psychotherapy for this...see a psychiatrist who can do both and help you choose which will be best for you.
