    pick and scratch at spots and the skin on their face in general until it bleeds scabs and scars? others may not see this as self-harm but i always do it when im frustrated and unhappy, and my self-esteems at its lowest. it's completely self-defeating and makes me feel even more ugly and worthless than i already do but i wondered if i was the only one who did this..

    Dermotillomania (Compulsive Skin Picking) is still a form of self harm, and it may be that you don't have that to that extent, but that is a similar thing, so you can rest assured that you are definitely not the only one who self harms in this way. Have you told anyone what you do?
