Picking at spots?
I've got such an obsessive compulsive relationship with my skin---I can't stand any kind of blemish on my face. I scratch at it until it looks even worse. Like a cut. A cut that's thinking about scarring. Any advice on how to stop this, or what I can do after I do it to speed up healing time?

Hmm, I do the same thing, I used to be much worse, I finally realized that unless someone has a microscope over you face standing one foot away, they can't see anything more than a spec. It's all in your head my dear!!!

Lol! So true. I pick spots/lumps that are so tiny because I gradually end up closer to the mirror! Then I realise every time it makes your face look worse with the red marks and I say to myself 'I'm never going to do that again...' A week later...

Giving up this awful habit has been my New Year's resolution for probably three or four years now. Also manage my finances more effectively, get more exercise, etc. I'm still scratching at my skin and spending money like it's my job...

I used to do it also.. until the time I realized that when I ''forgot'' to look at the mirror and do it, my skin was WAy better than it was... Just remember that if you dont do it, it will go away in like 1 day instead of 1 week if you pick!

Any advice on what to do if I cannot resist? Does Neosporin help?
