help with licking chin

posted 1 decade 6 years ago
Hi, This is a strange one, and i have searched google trying to find some help or advice. My daughter is 2 and a half, and for about 2 or 3 months now, she constantly licks her chin, her chin and around her mouth is getting all spotty and red now, but she just wont stop no matter what we say, she does it all day long and have no idea why.
Has anyone heard of this, or have any advice on what we can do to break this habbit?
Thanyou in advance.

my son Ben did this. i used to have to put vaseline on his chin it got so sore and dry. he just stopped doing it. i think you need to ignore it hun. dont say anything to her, just keep putting vaseline (or whatever you use) on her chin. thats what i did and he's stopped it. hope that helps
