Picking scabs and covering with band aid. Using neospoirn. Is it due to depression and anxiety?

Hi. Im a 17 year old female suffering from depression and anxiety . I often pick my scabs and cover them with bandaids and i use neospoirn (sorry if i spelled that wrong). I realized that while taking my bandaids off to put newer ones on them, one of my spots have bubbled up and has like turned my skin color that was covered by the cotton part like the color of a bruise . Im concerned of what it might be. Could it be a reaction to the bandaid or something else?

Hi Burn.stout,
You are a patint of depression but picking scabs, pulling hair, biting nails edges are more of signs of anxiety neurosis.
Anyway I think you are taking regular medicine for depression if not then please make sure you take them because lately studies have proven Depression to be a Neurotoxin.
Obviously a paradox bacause a toxin must be a substance but researcher put that strange term just to impress how much damaging the lack of treament could be.
Next time when you go to your physician get yourself evaluated for Anxiety neurosis and ensure you get a treament for that.
Your second query about bruise like appearance- Bandaid is a very poor dressing. may be you kept it applied there for more then a day and the wound has got macerated and became bruiselike- red and oozing.
I would suggest get a standard dressing of yor wound.
Take care!
