Table 3.28Excoriation (Skin Picking) Disorder

DSM-5: Excoriation (skin picking) disorder
Disorder Class: Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders
Recurrent skin picking resulting in skin lesions
Repeated attempts to decrease or stop skin picking
The skin picking causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning
The skin picking is not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (e.g., cocaine) or another medical condition (e.g., scabies)
The skin picking is not better explained by symptoms of another mental disorder (e.g., delusions or tactile hallucinations in a psychotic disorder, attempts to improve a perceived defect or flaw in body dysmorphic disorder, stereotypies in stereotypic movement disorder, or intention to harm oneself in nonsuicidal self-injury).

NOTE: DSM-IV does not have criteria for this disorder, so no comparison is made.
