You CAN recover from dermatillomania!
I wanted to make this picture set to serve as proof to anybody who feels hopeless.
I had trich as a child and during a hospitalisation, I developed dermatillomania (we think as a result of not being able to use other behaviours)
These pictures don’t even capture the worst because I couldn’t have my phone… But I was completely gripped by this obsession.
I was in hospital several times because I was septic. I developed MRSA (hospital infection/superbug)
But I recovered.
It is possible.
If you’ve had trich, you’ll know they tell you to save the hair in bags and that is very effective.
Since I couldn’t do that, I took pictures every day. Your brain just wants to see the spots fade or something.I struggled for three years and have been seriously recovering for about 7 months… I now have 1 or 2 ‘active’ spots at any given time. I barely spend any time picking now.
You can do this.
