Gosh some people are so rude. Was there any need to comment on how gross you think it is or how it's put you off food? Pica is very real and not something to make fun of.

I bite the skin around my fingers, but I think that's because I bite my nails when I have anxiety/panic attacks but I no longer have nails to bite..so I moved onto the skin around them. Never blackheads though, although I do love squeezing them (mainly on my chest as disgusting as that sounds)

Omfg, I do the same thing. Ran out of nails so I moved to the skin.

I used to have a huge problem with this. I get the urge every time I pick at my acne.

It's so gross and so terrible though.

It's an anxiety thing for me too. I still pick at my face and head during tests, chewing on every odd bunch of dead skin cells or scabs or whatnot. 

I almost always spit that stuff out now, though.

My own behavior repulses me.

I love eating my blackheads and I totally mutilate my face bc of it. Mostly when I'm stressed. I also eat hair follicles. I obviously don't eat, but often obsess over picking my boyfriends ingrown hairs and blackheads too. Sebum is like orgasmic to me like fucking squeezing a black head is so calming to me. It is gross but you're not alone and some of these comments are harsh as fuck

This is gross but it's a disorder.


I remember there was a kid in my elementary school class who would pick scabs off his head and eat them. He wasn't very popular, as you might have guessed.

I am horrified that some of you - on a disorder support forum - tell a person who opens up about something she is ashamed off, that she is gross and dusgusting and that you lost your cravings for food. like WTF. It's ok to think it but why say it in the thread?? It's so unnecessary and mean tbh. Imagine if you opened up about your (for example) bulimia and your friend just said uuugh you are so gross ugh disgusting. I see that your post is old OP, but I just wanted to say that I don't think you are gross, many people,more than you know, suffer from this disorder

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...

Omg that's totally me! I'm all about scabs and dead skin, I also spit it out. I have a habit of scratching my head for scabs, my hair gets oily fast and scabs and dead skin tend to form. So I'm weird also😉

Ugh. I got totally disgusted by this. I'm such a hypocrite.

Yes, anything i squeeze from a spot or blackhead goes in my mouth for me to fiddle about with between my tongue and my teeth. Yes, I chew the skin from the side of my fingers and inside my mouth. Yes, I purposely wear trainers that I'm allergic to a little bit, so the skin goes hard between my ankle and my heel, so that I can peel it off and chew on it. Yes, when I clip my toenails, I chew them.

I also chew soft plastic, like that bit that comes inside a bottle of coke. I once chewed the feet off a Barbie, because it felt good.

If i go for a burger, I often save the paper to eat after.

It's just something ive always done

I've never told anyone this.

I eat my own scabs, any skin I can get off of my body (main around the hands or feet), I will chew on a fingernail for as long as possible and finally, my own mucas.

I have no idea why, I just have an irresistible urge.


I totally get you. I do all those things and sometimes I use nail clippers or razors to get skin off my heels to eat it. I hate it and it has nothing to do with self harm.

I suppose all this behaviour could be a result of some sort excoriation disorder at least for me.
