I will peel the dead skin off my feet and eat it. I know thats gross, but maybe you guys understand it? I will do this until my feet bleed. I also eat my toe/fingernail clippings. Am I the only one?

Not alone, I have chewed on my toe/fingernail clippings too. I've chewed the skin on my thumb so much before that it was raw and bleeding. My worst habit though is biting my lip until it's dead.

I'm the same, this could be either pica or dermatillomania tbh. I've always wondered which was more like me..

I've never done it and pray to God I never will, but in the past I have been tempted to literally get a razor blade and take off that hard bit of skin over the heel and eat it. I am craaaazyyy.

My lips. I rip skin off my lips.  Skin seems appealing to me.

Couldn't suggest eating food skin though, a lot of bacteria on feet so be careful.

YUUUUUP

 

And the dead skin from when I peel after a sunburn. I've never told anyone about this, so I'm sorry if it's super weird.  :unsure:

OMG I love peeling the skin from a sunburn so if you're super weird then so am I.  I make my husband let me peel him when he sunburns because he won't use sunscreen so burns almost every time he's out in the sun

 

I don't eat my husbands skin, my own is a different story.

Yes to all of this! I want to eat/chew something and I figure that if it came from me, it will take however many calories were in that piece of skin or nail for my body to grow it back. Does anybody else here think that way? Is it only pica behavior if it's a compulsion?

I have dermatophagia. Embarrassed to say, but I've done that many times. Mostly only my fingertips, but if there's dead skin...I can't refuse -_-

I think the exact same way, I bite my hang nails and eat them, often peeling them back too far or creating more until it bleeds.
