Thanks for the query

I dont lreally understand the term 'ice' picking of skin is one of the signs of cocaine addiction/over dose. Both of u need help from a good psychiatrist and have to be in a good rehab facility.

Have a healthy living

I have the same problem. I am constantly looking for a cream or treatment to put on the sores. The best I have come across so far is a antibiotic cream perscribed for Golden Staff (ask your doctor for this yourself if she wont go). I am still on the look out for instant treatment...

There are also skin antibiotics, or from the chemist get "Flaminal Hydro".. Best thing ofcourse is prevention! She will start picking a few hours after using... Keep her busy! Keep her hands busy until she eventually goes to sleep
