My mom has become incessant about picking her skin. We have dressed her in long sleeves and put high socks on so its hard for her to have access to her skin. This helped but now she won't wear the long sleeve clothing or the socks. When she is not picking her skin Mom will then focus on picking lint off of the carpet and furniture. She is undeterred in her determination to pick at anything. We used to be able to distract her with puzzles, crosswords, conversation and giving her lotion to rub on her skin. Now, she cannot stop or control her obsession. I was wondering if anyone has had to deal with this obsessive activity and could offer any suggestions. Thank you!
