I’m a 20 year old and ever since I can remember I have picked the skin off my fingers, although I’ve never had it diagnosed I’m 99.9999% sure it is Dermatophagia, as I have googled it and it sounds very very similar to what I go through myself. I have never spoke to anyone about this and it affects my life everyday. I pick and bite the skin off my fingers until they bleed and are sore. I need to find someone else with this condition because it has affected me my whole life and I’m too embarrassed to go to the doctors. I’m also afraid because of the extent I go to in picking my fingers that I have permanently damaged the nerves in my finger tips and can’t really feel anything as a result. I really hope someone can relate and give me some advice, I feel so lonely because of this and would just like to know I’m not the only one.
