Keep in mind, anything that plucks hairs out of your skin has the potential to cause thickening of the hairs, increased number of hairs growing in the area, ingrown hairs, pigment change, distorted hairs, and hairs growing like a river underneath the skin's surface.

The OCD is really the issue here and would have to be dealt with before permanent hair removal is attempted. I suggest looking at the work of The Pfeiffer Research Institute who have some success with these types of problems,if you wish to stop tweezing.

I am so glad that you posted this. Tis the first time I have read it and I feel better because I thought I was the only one who did this and felt great when I plucked the hair from my chin. But awful after I lft a scar under it. I am going to try the product recommended here on this forum.
Did you have any luck getting help for it?.

There should be doctors that specialize in OCD disorders in your area, but do read the Pfeiffer website and bone up on OCD/ trichotillomania in order to get a sense of what the treatment options are for you.

My understanding is that usually OCD is usually considered a psychological matter. The Pfeiffer approach is biological, and they aim to rebalance the body biochemically. They perform blood tests to find the imbalances, and then treat using custom made minerals and vitamins. It is, as Dee says well worth looking into because their approach is different. They mainly treat depression, anxiety and behavioural problems.

I'm new to this forum and haven't read everything in the thread in depth. I am finding that I have OCD nailbiting and since about age 25 I've been armed with countless tweezers in every convenient place to hunt down any course long growing hair on my chin and excavate in any form necessary, leaving scars, sores, etc. Is there really a solution to this problem?? It's not about removing with electrolysis, I am constantly using my hands to find the hairs, and the tweezers to pull them out.
