So my almost 5 year old has been obsessively finger/hand licking. Like every few seconds. He says they are dry but they don't seem to be and lotion doesn't help.
He does not seem to be a particularly sensitive child but I am wondering if it is anxiety.
He hasn't been diagnosed but he seems to have some ADHD tendencies but so far has not have any issues in school.
Every where on the web handlicking seems to be linked with special needs/OCD.
Has anyone had a kid do this obsessively as a phase and it NOT be an indicator of issues? Has anyone had this be the first indicator of greater issues to come?
