I think the conditions you're talking about are called dermatophagia/dermatillomania and Trichotillomania. I suffer from compulsive skin picking myself

I compulsively eat my dandruff flakes, even if they're a bit scabby. I also just peeled the callus off my big toe and chewed on it like gum.

A past boyfriend got me in the habit of eating my own boogers and it disgusts my current SO. Whoops.

Thank fucking god other people do this lmao

 

Scabs, hair sacs, eye boogers, nose boogers. I'm c o n s t a n t l y chewing the skin around my finger nails, it looks so awful. If I'm not chewing my fingers, then I'm chewing the inside of my lips or cheeks. I occasionally bite my nails but not so much any more. Never met someone who munches on the other stuff though.

I like the tasty dry bits on the corner of my finger nails.

The sack of the hair thing sounds pretty normal to me, I tried it, not my thing, but I can see why people would like it.

I sometimes cut off pieces of dead skin and eat it, and it makes me feel gross but I feel the need to eat it for some reason.

Scabs, peeling skin, cuticles, boogers, cysts, pores, all of that shit. The only thing I don't do is hair. 

 

I guess its supposed to be gross but I don't find it to be so. I can't at all believe that someone doesn't have at least one off bodily thing they ingest. And if they say thy  


I wanna be special. So fucking special.
