Compulsive Skin Picking
Subject: Health | Topics:

Compulsive skin picking is characterised by the repetitive picking of the skin to an extent where damage is caused. It is typically the face that skin picking starts, however it can be carried out on any part of the body. Individuals affected by CSP may start by picking at normal blemishes such as freckles or moles, pre-existing existing scabs, sores or even acne blemishes.
