Cured. Thanks to this one tiny post.

So anyway. Nope, can't say I've heard of it before. What do they taste like?

I've heard of this before, don't know what its called. Sometimes its a deficiency in your vitamin levels, and sometimes its a form of anxiety.

I am diagnosed with generalized anxiety. Hmmm. I don't know if that's what you meant, but I pick at my face for blackheads, just like I eat my fingernails and toenails. I'll research it!

How are they............chewy? Like, how big black head do you got? (Not rude, just asking) 


Oh well
I have heard before about people eating (more like, sucking?) the white stuff they pop out from achne, often as they talk about their dermatillomani. (I think it's called excuration disorder or something like that in english) That when you have a need for picking dead skins, zits, etc and it's related with anxiety and stress.  :)

Wow.  I... wow.

 

I'm sorry, I'm not judging you at all, it's just making me feel a bit nauseous and I'm fully feeling that half a carton of lemon sorbet I just nailed and am attempting to keep down.  But I probably do plenty of weird shit that would make you feel nauseous (e.g. eat half a carton of lemon sorbet?? wt-even-f)

 

Aaannnddd also, I'm kinda curious - you can, like, pick them out?  Mine are pretty much embedded in my nose, I fucking hate them.

I can relate to this. I presume it's anxiety, I also pull out and eat my hair, and eat random flowers but that is more of a compulsion, like if I think about the flower and the thought of eating it and then I have to do it. Sometimes I make my boyfriend eat the flowers too   :lol:

I do stuff like this too. I eat dead skin, finger/ toe nails, blackheads, hair roots etc. but I have not been diagnosed with depression/anxiety or anything like that so im just wondering if there might be any other causes if doing this but i very well might be depressed...

Isn't it the worst! I know it's bad, but I've tried scratching with my nails, using a (not to be ever used, obvs) toothbrush, EVERYTHING. The most I can do is use a blackhead cleanser daily and pretend it does something. But it really really doesn't :-(

Haha...I know what you mean, I don't eat blackheads...but I eat scabs, my own blood, dead skin, and my nails...but I kind of just chew on them for a moment and spit them out (excluding blood, which is kind of tasteless, sometimes a bit salty and sometimes it tastes like metal)

I feel so weird...

I'm the same. Except I Ingest all those. Wish I could just spit it out. I feel disgusting but have been doing it since age 6 (I'm 31 now).

It is called Autophagia which is a form of Pica and also considered Self-Cannibalism. Just thought I'd share...

I can't judge, as i do have dermatophagia, but have never heard of eating blackheads.

Assuming it's heavily anxiety-based as well (but I don't know), is it a compulsion? Are you aware you're doing it? Sounds like stupid questions, but I hardly ever really pay attention when I do, and it's usually when I'm highly stressed out about one thing or another. Sometimes, I have to stop myself, cool down, and think what might be causing me to do it right now :wacko:

 

What I do is I'll just spend as long as possible picking at the skin on my fingers/close to the nail, usually peeling off hangnails and going from there. There's this adrenaline rush once I've done it that I can't really explain. It's a coping mechanism for sure...it takes your mind off the pain
