I am a woman in my 20s with no physical illness history but once diagnosed with depression. My concern is I love to pick my ears too much. Every single day, i will use cotton buds to pick my ears, sometimes i use steel ear pick too. I did it about 4-5 times a day to a point my ears starts to bleeding and gets watery and now, my ears kinda not able to hear fully. I tried to stop but I really can’t because sometimes my ears will itch and although sometimes it make my ear hurts, but it feels like a habit that i cannot stop. What should i do with my habit?
