Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. You seem to be suffering from self harm or self injury.

This is usually due to an underlying personality disorder. This can also happen due to an underlying depression or anxiety. My sincere advice is to consult a psychiatrist/clinical psychologist and seek an opinion.

Anti-depressants and cognitive behavior therapy is usually required for the treatment of the same. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
