My sister has a terrible habit of picking on her gums. She says that her gums itch and she has to pick at it until she has bleeding gums. We've seen dentists and doctors about it and they've found nothing wrong with her. I think it's psychological because she does it more when she's stressed. It's a compulsive behavior.
I wish there was a way to help her. I don't know how we can stop the itchy feeling. I think she will stop her habit if the itching goes away.
Is anyone else here dealing with this issue? Have you found any remedies?
