I have a compulsive desire to pick my nails and cuticles, and I just wanted to find out from y'all if my fingers look very bad. I'm just curious to see how bad they look from an outsider's point of view and see if they differ from my own perception. It might be a little gross/morbid so please don't click if you're scared!

It doesn't look gross but it looks like you definitely do have a problem with picking.

They really don't look that bad.

However, it's easy to get infected, so be sure to wash your hands with soap and water regularly (but not obsessively).

You could also try putting band-aids on your fingertips or wearing gloves to make it more difficult to pick.

Look up "habit reversal therapy" and trich.org for some good information.

I used to have a problem picking my cuticles,.. I was very disappointed by your pics.

That's nothing. And I'll leave it at that.
