skin picking

My granddaughter has been picking at the skin on her face for as long as I can recall. She is now 3 1/2 and still picking scabs on her face. She has scars from old scabs. She does it at all times--when she is playing, doing nothing and even sleeping. My son and daughter in law put bandaids on her sores, but she frequently picks them off. I don't know what else to do for her. She does not seem to have any rashes, eczema or other allergies or illnesses. Suggestions?
