Trichotillomania can be effectively treated with a combination of psychotherapy and medications. I would urge you to seek help at the earliest to treat the condition. I would strongly suggest you to refrain from self blame and guilt, and treat the condition as a medical illness which is treatable. Hope this helps you .. get well soon..
