Dermatillomania (also known as compulsive skin picking) and excoriation disorder is an impulse control disorder characterized by the repeated urge to pick at one's own skin, often to the extent that infection, scarring and other damage is caused. Dermatillomania is also considered a form of self-injury and can be a compulsion of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Habit reversal therapy is one treatment for dermatillomania.
