Ways to Stop Biting your Nails

Nail Biting Treatment:

Many children eventually grow out of nail biting. But for teens and adults who still struggle with the habit, some techniques have proven results.

  • Coat your nails with a bitter-tasting nail biting polish. The nasty taste will discourage you from biting. You can also use a regular clear or colored nail polish to prevent nail biting. The same technique can work with your child.
  • Keep nails trimmed short. You’ll have less of a nail to bite.
  • Get regular manicures. If you spend the money to keep your nails looking attractive, you’ll be less likely to bite them.
  • Use an alternate technique to manage your stress. Try yoga, meditation, deep breathing, or squeezing a stress ball to relax you.
    Tips to Stop Nail Biting
  • Put a rubber band around your wrist and snap it whenever you get the urge to bite your nails.
  • If you’ve tried these techniques and nothing is working, wear gloves or put self-adhesive bandages on the tips of your fingers so your nails won’t be accessible to bite.
  • Talk to your doctor or mental health professional if fingernail biting persists along with anxiety and stress. It could be a sign of a more serious psychological problem, including OCD, which can be treated with counseling, or medications.
