Nexcare by 3M makes this fantastic product that is very useful for skin pickers trying to stop. It’s called Tegaderm transparent dressing – a bandage for wound care, but rather than being Band-Aid-like, it’s like a clear breathable sticker that you can wear for up to a week. It’s ideal for breaking the habit of picking a certain area, and for letting the skin heal. A couple of years ago I used the 4 x 4 3/4 inch ones on my chest. You can barely feel it. For me, it only got really uncomfortable when I sweated during dance class. It’s breathable but not THAT breathable, and when the beads of sweat wouldn’t go away, I had to take it off. Theoretically you can wear it for a week, but for me half a week was the practical limit.
