They seem to forget all of that when the urge to bite their nails comes upon them. Help with compulsive nail biting could make a world of difference in their lives!     

Will power doesn't work

Many have tried to stop nailbiting by calling upon their will power or placing a bad tasting substance on their fingernails, but this doesn't work for very long – if at all. This is commonly done without much success in the case of small children who have a problem habit of nail biting, but it works no better for a child than it does for an adult.

What are the signs of compulsive nail biting?

There are several symptoms and signs of compulsive nail biting, which include -
