Lip biting/sucking

It started a month after i stopped breast feeding her.. and now its been almost 2 yrs n whatever we try to do we cannot get her out of that habbit....

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Forget about it. As she grows older, she will stop doing this.

Don't pay any attention to it.

Since you seem to be interested in a medicine that may suit your child in general, let us discuss further.

These are the remedies given in Kent.

Face, picking, lips : apis., ARUM-T(3), BRY(3), cina., cob., con., hell., nit-ac(2), nux-v(2), ph-ac., rheum., zinc.

Now read about Arum-t, Bry, Nit.ac and Nux.v, in a few MMs,(Kent,Nash,Boericke) and see if any of these four medicines seems to fit your child.

All these MMs are available online.




Come back if you see any similarities in any of the medicines. You may see some symptoms in one medicine and some other in another. List out all such medicines with the similiarities you found. We can discuss further.
