hi! I’ve seen other questions on here relating to picking one’s skin, acne, lips, scabs, etc. and i’ve seen a lot of replies about fidgets helping, but are there any alternatives to those? they don’t work that great for me unfortunately and it’s a habit i would like to break😅

      Can also be helpful to keep your nails cut very short and skin/lips moisturized to prevent any tempting spots

      i constantly travel through the dermatillomania tag on here telling people to get a nintendo switch…i’ve been a horrid skin picker since middle school and it’s the best thing i’ve done for myself. it’s mentally stimulating and absorbing and it takes 2 hands to play

      I bought a loom set and started making hats and scarves. Tearing things apart just makes me feel worse. But I'm also trying to quit smoking (I picked it up as a hand fidget and it's killing me).lol

      Corks while I'm at home. Or some paper that needs to be thrown away. I just sit and tear them apart.
