Feel Satisfied When Watching Videos Of Removing Dandruff And Blackheads?
Hello doctor. I am 16 years old, I am female. For some reason, I feel satisfied / like when I see dandruff peeled off, I have been experiencing it for a long time. However, lately I used to see videos on YouTube that show the process of removing dandruff, which is also the process of removing blackheads. During the process, I feel that the dandruff should be peeled off, if I don’t watch until the dandruff is peeling off, I will feel restless. When watching the video, my hands want to pull out dandruff. It’s not just dandruff, every time I see dry sores, my hands itch to peel them off, otherwise I will feel restless and worried. Is what I’m experiencing a disorder? If so, what was the cause? And can it be cured?

In some people there will indeed be a feeling of satisfaction or a sensation of pleasure when plucking peeling skin. This also applies to blackhead squeezing. This condition is said to be closely related to an anxiety disorder. If your habit has an impact on your daily life or work, it can be said to be a disturbance or disorder.
For treatment you should consult directly with a psychiatric doctor or a psychiatrist because it requires in-depth interviews related to your life history which may cause an anxiety disorder.
Meanwhile, some suggestions that you can do are:
Always keep your hands clean. Keep yourself busy with other work so that you don't feel like pressing blackheads or pulling out your skin. Get enough rest. Regular exercise Avoid consuming caffeinated drinks. That's all the information we can convey. May be useful
