I am new here and seeking help. My 6 year old son who has ADHD and is taking Adderrall XR is picking the skin off of the top of his fingers. I spoke to him about it several time and whenever I am around, I can get him to sit on his hands or do something else so it doesnt happen, but its mostly bad when he comes home from school and its bloody or picked almost all the way to the bottom of his thumb. I have since spoken to him and told him until we can stop doing so, I will have to cut his nails really short to keep him from doing so, but his nails grow really really quickly so if I miss cutting them every other day basically we are back to square ones and I also do not want to cut too short, in risking hurting him.
I have googled and talked him to death in trying to figure out why or how to stop it with no solution and I am really out of resources or ideas! We start therapy on June 17th (Have been waiting for 4 months to find a spot with a therapist that takes our insurance), but until then I am on my own to figure this out.
Any help would be appreciated it...
