Another nail biter and skin picker here. I only bite my nails a lot when I’m anxious, but I’ve substituted destroying them with nail clippers instead.

As for my skin, fortunately I never had a huge acne problem. I do however, have folliculitis all over my upper arms and the backs of my legs. It produces lots of lovely bumps and ingrown hairs, which make more bumps and I cannot leave them alone. Drove my mom crazy.

I feel like I’m sensitive to how my skin feels. Sometimes I know a bump is there before I see or feel it.

My dad picks at sores too, and his mom did also but not as bad as I do.
