The purpose of this website is to provide information to people who pick their skin, their families, and for anyone who wants to learn about Dermatillomania. I believe that knowledge is power and that one person has the ability to make dramatic changes to things we want to see improved in life. I want to reach out to medical providers who have not heard of this disorder or who need to learn more about Dermatillomania in order to properly assess and treat a patient with this.
With spreading awareness, I hope for more research to be conducted to try and effectively cure this disorder. Spreading awareness to make this a “household name” will help validate the existence of sufferers with this disorder. I am on a mission to make sure that the most correct and up-to-date information is available so that the public will not mistake misinformation for fact or stigmatize sufferers any further.
