Question Anxiety Relief -Need Help

I Have a peculiar habit of plucking the fine hairs from the back of one my fingers. I used to use my nails but they are so small and sparse i have to use a sharp tweezer now . Where most people would find this irritating or painful this gives me much pleasure. But most importantly it relieves anxiety . Thats why I an pluck. The urges have gotten so bad that i go into a public bathroom with my tweezers to pluck. I see a pyciatrist and psychologist and im on meds, but nothing works. Anyone have any ideas???
