How do I help my 4 year old stop sucking on her fingers?

She was born with those fingers in her mouth (literally) they had to pull her hand out her mouth to get her out. But now the skin around her fingers are starting to blister and die. I have tried everything. Hot sauce, finger deferment, alcohol everything nothing is working. Does anyone have any ideas to help???
