My 6 yr. old bites her nails and peels the skin around till it bleeds. Can't get her to stop. Has anyone had success in stopping this behavior? I think her finger is infected now.

Gloves, and heavily moisturized fingers are the only thing that prevents my hubby from this! lol. That or having something else to keep his hands busy (peeling grapefruits, eating sunflower seeds).
Are there any activities that she does that you find increasing this habit?
