What kind of preventative measures do you use to help yourself from picking at/peeling your skin?

      Hi! In my case, keeping my hands busy playing videogames and drawing, it helped me a lot with a fidget toy right next to me in case I zone out and start picking at my skin (face) and getting hydrocolloid patches for my face. Hope this might help you.

      I get acrylics, actually! I have them completely rounded, so that way, there's no spots on my nails that are sharp enough to pick.

      get a nintendo switch!! i’ve struggled with dermatillomania my whole life and i’ve recently found this solution at 21. while it doesn’t solve the problem, it totally absorbs my focus and takes two hands to play. i’ve enjoyed super mario galaxy, spiritfarer, hollow knight, and im currently playing breath of the wild
