I have been a chronic picker all my life, and since coming out with cystic acne in the past 6 months - due possibly to the mirena IUD (it is a known side effect and have only had problems since insertion) I tend to exile myself for days at a time as it is too embarassing to face the world, plus is too painful to attempt to cover with makeup. Recently however, and as a joke, i put a pair of cotton fishnet stockings on my head when i had some (close!) friends over. What started out as a laugh - now seems to be a valid solution! i can operate as normal - but cannot access pimples - gloves are a silly idea, and i also tried bandaids over some but the itching was unbearable. Anyway - my point is - if you can restrict access for a few days it will give them time to heal. I know not everyone has this option of exile - but if you do, i can recommend the fishnets it for even the most disturbed picker! (kinda cute if you tie up the legs to look like puppy dog ears!) WARNING - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ENTER A CONVENIENCE STORE LIKE THIS! :dance:
