What is nail-biting and when do you need me
Can’t stop biting your nails? Iehhh that’s gross!
You know how much bacteria live underneath your nails?
Unfortunately, you are not the only nail-biting kid... This oral compulsive habit is very common in children but not without danger. Biting nails can lead to broken skin on the cuticle. When cuticles are improperly removed, they are susceptible to microbial and viral infections such as paronychia. Saliva may then redden and infect the skin. In rare cases, fingernails may become severely deformed after years of nail-biting due to the destruction of the nail bed.
But don’t worry, I will make sure your nails are allowed to grow again!
