Sucking lower lip - in 4yr old

Hi Everybody
My daughter is almost 4 yrs old and since she was 2 & 1/2 yrs she got in the habit of sucking her lower lip. At that time she was in the day care and it started suddenly I presumed it was probably insecurity which got her to do it but now the problem is she sucks her lower lip in her sleep also because of which her front tooth have become protruded and the front two teeth are starting to split. This is causing me worries and we have ignored it thinking it will stop and have also explained to her that her teeth wil split but she is unable to stop the habit even when playing with other kids or watching TV or whenever concentrating and while sleeping she sucks her lower lip. Is there any homeopathy medecin to stop the habit?? She has very little appetite and is very thin only 11.8 kgs but is otherwise active and everything is normal.Please do suggest something that can be done to get her rid of this habit.

Dear Monica,

Arum Triphyllum- Lips dry swollen , cracked for the he is always sucking in to mounth.

Bryonia-Chewing motion of lips , lips dry, as if burnt,parched, wants to moisten them and sucking into mouth

Other drugs are also there but above medicine is first graded medicine.

Thank you Dr. deoshlok
My daughter sucks her lower lip when concentrating or while going to sleep and in her sleep also. She was given bryonia 30 before as she has nose bleeds from right nose in summer and winter and it is not by digging just suddenly there is a lot of bleeding.When given bryonia also she continued lip sucking. Her upper lips are dry and skin keeps peeling out. She is always in a good mood but does'nt like crowds since a little baby.
Arum Triphyllum has cracked lips because of sucking but that is not the case but if you think that will help please do suggest a potency. And what is the third medecine?? My husband had the same habit in childhood but he was applied bitter gourd ( karela ) , neem juice etc to stop I don't want to do that. Please do help as her teeth is splitting and that is a great concern for me.

Experiment with different potencies of Arum and Bryonia. Try lower as well higher.
