Obsessive hair pulling (trichotillomania)?

Is this something that has to be diagnosed by a doctor?

I have been reading up about different causes/reasons as to why I always pull my hair out, it’s only ever one hair at a time on my head or arms/legs. Most of the time I don’t even realize I’m doing it until after because I catch myself playing with the hair after I’ve pulled it out. I found out about trichotillomania online and everything I’ve read is exactly describing me and what I do with my hair. I’m embarrassed and I don’t really want to see a dr but I know I should.
