This is about my dad. He keeps rubbing his face, sometimes it's red and inflamed. Also his got some small cuts on his face from getting scratched by branches in the garden, he won't leave them alone and keeps picking the scabs, thinking he can heal them faster. No amount of persuading will stop him from doing this. Apart from this he is quite stable, and seems to be fairly content, I just can't stop him picking at his face. He's terrified of doctors, so there's no way he would ever see one again. No amount of reassurance or explaining that he is hurting himself works. I feel completely helpless.
