Excoriation (skin-picking) disorder is characterized by the repetitive touching, rubbing, scratching, picking at, or digging into one's skin, often in an attempt to remove small irregularities or perceived imperfections. The individual may struggle to resist the urges to pick. Such behavior may be distressing, time-consuming, impairing, and may result in skin discoloration, scarring, or infections.
