Hey guys! I have sort of fallen off the no picking bandwagon lately because I got a skin fungal infection due to a bunch of antibiotics I've been on for recent medical issues. The fungal infection has caused a bunch of itchy pustules (like whiteheads) on my legs, chest, back, and even on my face. It's not that bad, but it has been bad enough that it has interfered with my no picking efforts. I have a derm appointment on Monday and hopefully it'll start clearing up shortly after that. Overall I am still picking much less than I was before. I've also been regularly doing TCA peels and I think they give me incentive not to pick because if I destroy my face with a picking session I can't do a TCA peel. The peels also really help with clogs.
Jane3, it is really great to hear that you went a week only picking slightly! Think of that as a positive thing!
