skin picking 3 year old
mimijanof5 posted:
My granddaughter picks sores on her face, then picks the scabs off when they heal. She has scars from old sores. She picks at any time--playing, doing nothing and sleeping. She does not have any rashes, allergies, eczema or other illnesses. This has been going on for several years. She is now 3 1/2. We have tried putting on bandaids, but she picks them off, or she chooses a new spot. She knows she isn't supposed to do this. What can I do?
mountainmom48 responded:

is she meeting all otherwise appropriate developmental milestones? what does her pedi say about this? the pedi could make a referral for a developmental screening that might pick up on something. perhaps this is a sensory issue and ot could be helpful. i hope you find ways to help her. good luck.
