The urge to pull at your hair or pick at your skin – does this sound familiar to you or anyone you know?
This comic has what you need to know about BFRBs – body-focused repetitive behaviors. BFRBs include trichotillomania, which makes people pull or pluck their hair, and excoriation disorder (also known as dermatillomania), which makes people pick their skin.
Many people with these disorders don’t know much about them – and you may also feel lost about what to do about it. Try out these strategies, and remember that you’re not a failure for this – your illness is valid.
