Is there a correlation between nosepicking and any mental illness?

Nose Picking. Nose picking is common habit in adults, but in most is not really a disorder. In some though, the behavior can be much more time consuming and socially compromising -- and is called "rhinotillexomania." these individuals may have a kind of obessive anxiety disorder related to skin picking. It can be physically harmful too. For more, see: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/7852253.
