Trichotillomania may be connected to other underlying mental health problems, it's best to seek help with those first and see if it eases the trichotillomania.

Quote:
Trichotillomania has been associated with a number of psychiatric conditions, including obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), mental retardation, schizophrenia, and depression and self mutilation. Research has also suggested that approximately 70 percent of patients develop moderate to severe school problems subsequent to hair pulling.

Habit reversal training is the most effective way to combat trichotillomania. You may want to talk to your doctor about it for more information. I hope this helps.

I would throw the tweezers away, or leave them in a place where you can't have easy access to them like in your locker. Also try keeping your hands off your eyelashes or face.
I saw an episode of "True Life" about Trichotillomania and it can be a hard problem to deal with.
Good Luck.!
