I was wondering if there is a way I can treat my impulse in picking out my scabs from my scalp. I am starting to develop bald spots in the front area of my hair. Other than that, I have lots of hair, and don’t think that my hair will ever thin. Also, if I stop picking at my scabs, will the hair ever grow again at the aformentioned bald spots? Or will I have to use aids like propecia, if they would be of any help?
You describe a condition known as trichotillomania. It is a sort of obsessive-compulsive disorder and there may be help. But first, you need to see a doctor who can diagnose you and manage your obsessive behavior, one step at a time.
