Face & skin picking support 

Twelve Steps to recovery Hi there! If you were brought to this site, you or a loved one probably has a problem with dermatillomania, or compulsive skin picking (CSP). CSP can be hard to understand and even harder to deal with!

This site was developed to give support to people with CSP. I did a search on the internet and couldn't really find any good comprehensive sites for support for CSP (I found alot for Trichotillomania, which are very helpful too, as these two afflictions are related). So, I decided to create my own.

I want to tell you that I am not a doctor, and nothing I say or link to should be taken as a medical authority. Even though you are here to get support and help, this site is not a replacement for therapy or medication. If your or a loved one's CSP gets unmanageable , your really need to contact a professional.

I hope that you will find a nice support group in the people who frequent the message board, and please feel free to sign the guestbook. It's so helpful to those who come and visit us! 

If you have any comments or suggestions for this site, I would be SO happy to receive them! Please email me by clicking here. Thanks! :) 


I think this painting is a fantastic representation of what it feels like to have CSP.  If you like this art, please visit www.amybrownart.com. Thanks!.
