Excoriation Disorder is the repetitive and compulsive act of causing injuries to the skin itself, being used as pathological when it is recurrent, or what causes discomfort and often causes the injury because of the injury, using the psychological suffering even more after the use and indirectly an individual's relationship with himself and with another. The method for this research was a systematic review of the literature, based on the PRISMA strategy, which made it possible to carry out a wide and varied collection of various works carried out on this theme, both in national and international literature. While the results, we found that the disorder is more prevalent in women, it can also be exhibited in other comorbidities. There was also a need to reflect on this disorder from an interdisciplinary point of view, no psychology can contribute to the subjective aspects of individuals affected by this disorder.
