It started when I was very young. I used to suck my thumb until age 9. I replaced that habit with biting my nails until age 12. I replaced that habit with biting the skin off my fingertips! Sometimes until they bleed. Im in my 30's now. Sometimes when im nervous or bored. It starts out like if I have a hang nail or I will dig at the skin with my fingernail and it sticks out so I pull at it which makes it worse. Its like a snowball effect. The skin heals and grows back thicker but I do it again! What can I do? I cant put band aids on them all the time.
