Pick, pick, pick....gaaaah! 9 Years, 11 Months ago  
I've gotten into the scab picking really bad lately. It's started to get bad enough that my scalp feels raw and it's worrying me. I am under alot of stress, but it's the good holiday kind. I could really use some support for this because it's a new realization this year. I haven't found a whole lot of good info online, but I am planning to make a doctor appointment.

The funny thing about this is that my meds have been helping me tremendously for anxiety and panic (only 1 small PA since August), but I've never had so much trouble with the picking before. I am wondering if it's possible if the Paxil may be causing me to pick more?

Sigh...any advice would be great.

I wouldn't say it's the Paxil.
Doing things like that tend to be a comfort thing - like you do it unconsciously while reading or watching TV - especially when you're feeling nervy or overwhelmed from stress, and you feel the need to be doing something with your hands - bit like smoking!
Try and find something else to keep your hands busy - like crosswords or drawing, and when your scalp starts feeling healing and feels better, you'll be less inclined to pick.

Re:Pick, pick, pick....gaaaah! 9 Years, 11 Months ago  
Hi lovestosing. I pick a lot too. I think I do it because I'm bored. Also about 8 months ago my friends kid got head lice. I was so afraid that I would get it that I kept searching my hair with my fingers. Now months later I find myself still doing it. Picking my head and all that. I do it alot at work. No one has said anything but they probley have seen me do it. Sometimes I dont even notice that Im doing it. Now it is a habit.

I used to do this very badly on my arms and legs and occasionally I will catch myself trying to do it and stop myself. Honestly it took a lot of self control and just enduring the miserable feeling of thinking I needed that scab gone or that bump or whatever and finally it all healed up. I still struggle with nail biting but not as much as I used to. When I was on paxil it made me want to eat everything in the house urgently

I get like that really badly too, mostly with blackheads and the like on my arms and shoulders. Half the time I don't even know I am doing it. When I try to stop, like scooby said, I like to find something to do with my hands.

If scalp itch is the big thing I would say (if you can) get one of those products that are designed to be rubbed into your hair to deal with the itch, though I cant for the life of me remember the name of any of them now. That way when you rub it in your getting the feeling of the scratching motion and helping it heal faster.
