Help.

I consistently pick hairs from my face(moustache,beard) hands,etc. I usually use tweezers or even my teeth. Sometimes I even dig into the skin to get there hair out until my OCD/stress is at rest. It leaves scars. I use to do it at home,but it spread into my work life. I'm currently on medical leave. I'm exhausted and stressed and I just want to go back to normal. If I pick one hair on my hand, I immediately go to another. I can spend hours in front of a mirror plucking and scaring myself. Which is why I covered the mirror(which helps a little). But there's millions of other things. I just want to make sure there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
