For a few weeks now, Sci’s been wanting to get away from the sex for a bit. Not that I mind having this reputation as being a sex blogger (or whatever), but there’s more out there to weird science than sex.
And so, the word of the day is: rhinotrichtillomania. Say that three times fast. rhinotrichtillomania, rhinotrichtillomania, rhinotrichit…crap.
Fontenelle et al. “The man with the purple nostrils: a case of rhinotrichtillomania secondary to body dysmorphic disorder” Acta Psyciatric Scandanavia, 2002.
So what could this word refer to?
Hmmmm, I wonder.
