Dermatillomania / Skin Picking Disorder is the repetitive picking at one’s own skin to the extent of causing damage. The OCD Center of Los Angeles offers this free and confidential test to help you get a better idea of whether or not you are exhibiting signs of Dermatillomania / Skin Picking Disorder. Simply check those items that apply to you, and email the test to us using the simple form below. While this questionnaire is not meant to replace a thorough evaluation, it may help in identifying traits of Dermatillomania / Skin Picking Disorder.

This questionnaire is adapted from various psychometric tests such as the Hair pulling scale (Massachusetts general hospital), the NIMH Trichotillomania Sympton Severity Scale (NIMH-TSS), and other BFRB scales such as Milwaukee Inventory for the Dimensions of Adult Skin Picking (MIDA) (Walther,Flessner, Conelea and Woods, 2009) and the Skin Picking Scale-Revised (Snorrason, Olafsson, Flessner, Keuthen, Franklin and Woods, 2012). This questionnaire is not exhaustive and is not meant to replace a comprehensive assessment by a qualified mental health professional. Also, it is important to differentiate between Dermatillomania, which is a psychological condition, to medical conditions. Consult a doctor for medical examination if you are uncertain.
