Male chest hair pulling

Hi and thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share in this group.

I have searched on line but cannot find anything related to trich and pulling chest hair, this is my disorder. This has plagued me for a decade at least and I cannot stop. My chest is badly scarred and sore, I try creams and to abstain but it doesn't last long. I revert to stroking and picking scabs and hurting myself. Pulling tiny regrowing hairs.

I apologise if this has been a subject of conversation before and if you can link me in it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for reading and advice you can offer.

I have a similar pulling habit. I know that feeling of digging in to get that one small hair. Thank you for posting.

Thanks for your reply. I had a decent run but it didn’t last and my chest is littered with sores and they hurt. I just can’t stop.

I too have been suffering from this disorder from past fifteen years or so. I used to pull out my scalp hair. I tried to find a solution to this and ended up doing some hypnosis on myself. I had a kind of a revelation that is helping me change my perspective and get over trichotillomania. I don't even feel like putting my hands into my hair anymore (and in a good sense). I tried to write my experience and share it. I have been posting this on forums to check if this can work for others too.

Please check this out article and let me know if it helps you -

Good luck!
