my 12-year-old scratches up her skin when she gets anxious. (we're working on this). intead of it being red or scabbed over it had purple splotches like when blood vessles are broken. she's really worried about this, because of her anxiety. this is from pressure being applied, right? should i treat it in some way?
btw, yes, i re-posted. no need to call me a troll. :P
Worry less about the marks and more about why she's doing it. If she is not currently in therapy, she needs it ASAP.
