Hi, Ds has been picking at the same small wound on his face for well over a month, so that it never heals and his bedsheets are bloodstained where he lies his face. He is now also stratching a bit of excema on his arm until it bleeds. Does anyone have any idea how I can stop him? Have told him to stop and suggested he pat it instead when he has the urge, but I think he might also be doing it in his sleep.
I tried putting a plaster on his face but of course he took it off, and I think he would do that if I put anything over his fingers too...
Thanks for any ideas!
