I thought my mosquito bites itch and it's okay to scratch them then scratch till the itching stops. I pick scabs and have scratched my foot cause of anxiety till it swelled up. I pick at my skin has become a way for me to keep calm even though i have no bad thoughts

What things can you occupy your hands with that will help, but keep your skin intact?

Lead poison sounds funny, just a very little of ink actually contains lead :) but I understand - I'd scratch myself to blood, or I keep picking my black dots. Either try drawing where they can't see, or a rubber band on your wrist you pull and release for a little flick to your wrist...
