My daughter constantly licks/spits on her fingertips...

She is 8 years old. She also bites her nails off as far as she can... this licking thing is new though, mabey a couple weeks of it. I asked her why and she said they feel dry... anyone have an idea what's going on? I gave her lotion... still does it.

  • I did the same thing when I was a child. My fingers also felt dry, so I licked my fingertips. I just noticed one day that I did't do it anymore. I wouldn't worry about it.
