Books about Trichotillomania and Dermatillomania

Trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder characterized by the compulsive urge to pull out one's hair, leading to hair loss, distress, and social or functional impairment. Dermatillomania is its sister, characterized by the compulsive urge to pick one's skin. Both fall under the category of body-focused repetitive behaviors, slightly related to obsessive-compulsive disorder.

✨Some of these books are fully about life with a BFRB, while others have mere passing mentions. The goal here is to remove the stigma and broaden awareness.

✨Check out a more detailed post with a few excellent books about trich at Book Riot, as well as this love letter to one of the books on this list: When the Universe Gives You the Book You Need.
