Recipie for healthy hands
This helps a lot with my dermatophagia I healing my hands some as well as covering them up, preventing biting, and making them soft and moisturized rather than dry and red.
You will need  -1 pair of non latex disposable gloves -A little bit of desoximetasome cream (a dot for each finger)  -And a large glob of vaseline. (I use shea butter vaseline)
If you don’t have desoximetasome cream, that’s okay, you can use neosporin or something of the sort. That just tapers the redness and such.
Anyway, the process is very simple
1) just put a dot of the desoximetasome cream on each finger, more on the fingers with the most redness and irritation
2) rub it into your hands, paying special attention to the parts that are the worst
3) then get a giant glob of vaseline about the size a a quarter and rub it all over your hands. This will moisturize your hands very well, and make them quite slippery, so even if you take off the gloves you won’t want to bite them.
4) try not to touch anything, the vaseline will get everywhere.
5) then, put the gloves on, it’s kind of hard to do it yourself. I would suggest having someone help you put them on, so that you don’t get vaseline everywhere.
And that’s it! Usually I wear them after school and at night and take them off In the morning.  I hope this helps someone, I just wanted to share one of my techniques with other “wolf biters” like me.  Have a lovely day everyone

I might try this tonight.

I have been a picker for as long as I can remember.

Since I was very young I have always been scolded for my picking.  My legs were always spotty and raw with picked-over scabs.  As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gone through phases— some good, some very, very bad.

I pick when I’m stressed.  I pick when I’m anxious.  I pick when I’m bored.  I pick when I’m depressed or lonely.   I pick when I find any small imperfection.  I pick when I don’t even realize I am.  I like it so much that I sometimes even want to pick other people’s skin.

My problem areas are my fingers (thumbs, cuticles), feet, legs, chest, scalp, and face.

I recently moved abroad and am living alone for the first time.  I think the stress from this big change is what has really made my habit worse this time around.

I’m sick of getting asked if my hands are alright by my coworkers and students.  I need to make an effort to stop.  Hopefully this will help.

In the beginning I will probably post healing progress pictures of my problem areas for self-encouragement,   If you’re not into that kind of thing, steer clear.
