English translation:excoriation
Explanation:
I think "Escoliación" is most likely a typo for "escoriación", "excoriation" in English. "Escoriación"is sometimes translated as "abrasion", but it appears that "Abrasión" is on your list as a separate category.
Without more context, it's hard to say if this might perhaps be referring to signs of excoriation disorder, in which people pick at their skin out of habit or impulse.
