Prominent dent in the crown area, had a habit of picking sores on the scalp. Is the dent worrisome?

When I was a kid, maybe starting around 8 years old, I developed a picking problem where i would pick at sores on my skin multiple day. At one stage there were sores on my head and i ended up with sores that didn’t heal for over a year because i couldn’t leave them alone even for a minute. As a result (at least i think this is the cause), i have a dent in my head in the crown area. I don’t know if i’m imagining this but i am wondering if it has gotten worse over time. It’s very very prominent and i am wondering if my skull is thinner in that region or if my skull has bent in and putting pressure on my brain . I am really scared and would really like to know what i might be at risk of and if there is a particular specialist i should see?
