    Please help. Do I need to see a doctor? It gets bad then I go through good phases. At its worst, I can't show my hands to people. I chew and peel the skin under and around my nails, and the skin on the palmside under the uppermost joint of each finger and thumb. I've done it...

    Ever Since 6th Grade...

    This is a pretty disgusting habit, one that I've had ever since 6th grade (and now I'm 18 years old).  I bite the skin around my nails whenever I'm bored or nervous, so much so that I make my fingers bleed.  I'm trying to stop this bad habit, and I can break it for a...
