Skin Picking Disorder, which also goes by the name of Excoriation Disorder or Dermatillomania, is characterized by the repetitive pulling, picking, pinching, or playing with the skin that eventually results to lesions. While this is often viewed as a twitch or mannerism, there are those who suffer from the condition in such a way that it negatively affects their lifestyle to the point where they avoid social and professional advancements due to the shame they feel about their skin.
Whether it’s a habit or a disorder, however, the book opens up about the problems every skin picking practitioner suffers from and how to best beat the urge through systematic approaches that can be done by yourself or through the help of a therapist. From tracing the roots of the problem to administering treatment and continuing therapy and motivation – this book attempts to tackle a serious problem that’s been left ignored by the large community.
As you’ll find – Skin Picking Disorder can be more serious than it seems on the surface, but it’s not exactly unbeatable. Find out the How, the Why, and the When of skin picking solutions.
