Finally got a formal Dermatillomania diagnosis!! (even though I've figured/assumed for almost a year lol). Any go to strategies you guys have to curb the picking? I also probably have ADHD so idk if that effects strategies (my current therapist is hesitant to screen me for whatever reason and I will probably be therapist shopping this summer)

      @Ravioli_ I mentioned something off handedly to my therapist about a particular favorite scab I had last year and she suddenly got really interested LOL so she went thru the criteria and then made a big deal of it.

      Just now working on this too! What has worked for me is to surround myself by other fidgets. How did you go about getting a diagnosis?
