The past few months my 3 year old has been picking her nails (definitely not biting them) and so the nails are short & all the skin around them is red & sore. I've tried putting creams, tea tree oil to disinfect them, threatening her with going to the doctor (she doesn't like the doctor) but nothing seems to be working. I think she started to pick them because I have been away a lot for work and it started out as a nervous thing but now it seems to be a very bad habit. Any suggestions anyone?
