Article excerpt: Nail-biting is not uncommon amongst
children. As Paul Kechillan, an associate professor of
dermatology at the New York University Medical
Center suggests, is a habit that most children will grow
out of in time, although if it continues it can damage the
child’s nail and fingers and create other health problems,
such as sickness resulting from ingesting bacteria.
