Hi, I am a mum of 3 year old boy. I am very worried about his habit i. e. he loves to bit his own lips. At times even blood comes. I have made all the attempts but in vain. He evne does this at school means if he is free he is busy with lips. Please suggest what to do or is it becasue of any deficiency.

Hi Himani Senger I think this is a habit and i have seen even adults chewing their dead skin on lips. and sometimes it gets stretched and skin which is not dead is also pulled and blood comes. Just point out this everytime he does that and tell him some story that if he does so then this is not good. I remember my ma and grandma used to say this a lot like girls dnt shake legs, house should be cleaned before anyone leaves home etc. You may also try that.

Try femite.. Put it in his lips. Its used to prevent thumb sucking. But you can also try for this I think. It tastes very bitter. But please consult the doctor before using it. You could also ask the child's doctor for suggestions on how to prevent it.
