My ds has started giving himself hickys on his arm. We went to the dr for his 4 year checkup and i mentioned it to her and she started talking about self mutilization and seeing a psych doctor. That seems a little extreme to me. What do you guys think?

The same way anyone gets a hicky, i'd assume, except he does it to his own arm. I have never actually SEEN him do it, just the resulting "hicky"
