Im 19, and i've never really had a problem with acne until the past half year or so. My problem wasn't with pimples or serious acne like that, its with these little white clumps under my skin, under my arms, face, forehead, and on my back.
I hate them and always pop them out of my skin, I have been doing that for about half a year now and notice it leaves marks and scars which looks worse then it did at first and it looks like ive got a bad acne problem.
I know I should stop - Thing is its like a habit to me now and I cant stop doing it!!! Everytime I see those white clumps I break them out of the skin and im ruining my image!!
I came her for help, please someone tell me how to get over this its a habit and I feel like im addicted to doing it, please someone tell me ways to make myself stop!!!!!
Erm.. I have a picking habit too.. I even picked my really chapped lips when I was on Accutane..
I found that chewing gum helps.. Or maybe you should wear gloves?
I don't know what to say.. I know it's very tempting when it's so pickable.. like you just HAVE to.. but.. you should see my face.. Really bad scarring. I have no acne tho, But i missed the feeling of picking. :[
You might try visual imaging before picking: think about the worst your face has ever looked as a result of picking ... get the image vividly in your mind ... and think of it every time you're about to pick. This method has helped some. Good luck - I realize it's easier said than done.
