My 9 year old picks the skin on his hands and feet til they bleed. Does anyone have any advice.

If a 9 year old is picking skin until it bleeds, there is possibly an underlying problem. It could be anything from, a mental healthy issue or OCD to a skin problem. I would suggest you discuss this with a medical professional, and if there is no obvious physical reason for doing this, then discuss seeing a psychologist about it to determine the cause.
