PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

So I thought I was alone in this, but apparently many of you did too!

 

We know we're not supposed to pick. We know it can lead to scars and infections.  We know it hurts.  But we can't help it.

 

I'm starting this thread so that anyone who suffers with picking can have a safe space and judgement-free zone.  Please feel free to share whatever you need. 

 

Be warned: some things written here may seem "gross."   Please don't judge or tell us how gross they are.  We got that already, and that's not the point of this thread. 

 

xoxo,

 

Lauren

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

@dannyc you are right- i should be thankful. Crazy thing is, when he confronts me, my knee-jerk reaction is getting mad and always like "just this last one". 

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

@roxystar4 I hear you. When I get caught & hear "What are you doing" I get mad & frustrated; mad that I'm picking, frustrated/embarrassed I got caught. My punishment... he goes for my back & "helps me". My bacne are so painful. I use the Murad spray, and wipe my chest & back with toner, after I use the pad on my face, but I still have breakouts. 

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

@dannyc, you use the murad spray and it's not clearing up? Smiley Sad

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

I still get some. I workout a lot, and even if I shower right away, I still get breakouts. I have them on my chest too, but they aren't as bad. I think part of it is I have long hair (past my bra strap), but I still get them in the winter even when I'm covered up. I exfoliate my chest & back with the PTR blemish buffing beads & use the Murad spray Smiley Sad 

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

Aw that's too bad, atleast you're staying fit by working out alot! Smiley Happy

I wish I could give better advice on an acne body spray, but unfortunately I don't have much experience with it other than the Murad which has been working for my upper back.

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

@dannyc- do you use body wash before or after rinsing out your conditioner? I discovered the oils in my conditioner were causing a lot of acne, and once I switched to using body wash after the conditioner was rinsed out, I saw a huge difference.

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

@crazyRN, yup I do that. I'm wondering if maybe when I comb my hair out is the issue. I use argan oil as a detangler & already know that my face doesn't like it... hmmmmm.... 

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

@dannyc- Ahhh, that might be the culprit. I have to be careful about wiping my back off after I spray product in my hair after I shower as well.

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

You're exactly right about going into a haze.   I'm like that with my feet, but not so much by mosquito bites.  I'm too busy scratching at the bites and complaining about my hatred for mosquitoes lol.

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

the mosquito bite was just what led me to the picking. It was going into the bathroom with a mirror at night to look at the mosquito bite but then I looked up at my face and saw a zit... and it all spiraled from there.  

Mosquitoes are evil
