My son is almost 14 months, and is (thanks to teething) an avid thumb-sucker. The top of his thumb (by the knuckle) is calloused and his skin is starting to crack and look angry. He hasn't used a pacifier since he was 3 months and discovered how yummy his thumb is, so I doubt he'd take one now. Is there anything I can put on his thumb that is safe? My SIL recommended gauze, but he'll chew the fibers off. My aunt suggested liquid band-aid, is that safe? Anything I put on it will end up in his mouth.
