my daughter is 4 in dec and for the last year or so has "picked" I.e her face,chin legs ect she picks at her skin so much she makes it bleed so will scab over then jus picks it again and again the the same spot, she has several atm on her face and I know they are going to scar! I've tried different ways like talking to her and punishing her and doing sticker/reward charts, we've even gone as far as taken her to doca but nothing seems to work? any suggestions and would like to know if any other children went through this and wether its just a very long phase???
