A 28-year-old female asked:

I obsessivly pick sores on my hands and scalp, why can't I stop even though it hurts? Is it anxiety or something else?

Something else: If it 's not irritation (itching) then you probably have dermatillomania, which is just a fancy way of saying you obsessively pick at yourself. This is thought to be related to obsessive-compulsive disorder & may improve on an ssri antidepressant. Cognitive-behavioral therapy might also help. You could also try wearing a hat & gloves (kidding). Anxiety makes it worse.

Probably not: Any spot that is new or has changed with time should be looked at by your doctor. Only they can tell you whether it needs to be checked out by a hand surgeon or dermatologist. Serious hand bumps are not very common and usually do not need treatment, but you should get it checked out.

Wash well: As long as you have washed it throughly under running water for 10 min I would just watch it. If it is a dye or some sort of organic pigment it may stain your hands but if there is no burning, itching , or increasing redness it will go away in a few days. If it blisters or starts to spread see your doctor.
