        I had the same problem with my oldest son. Hot sauce worked for me. I didn't put it but keep telling him I will put a hot sauce he gradually stopped. There is also a nail polish which is safe, you can get it from the pharmacy to stop finger sucking it might work too.

          My MIL was just telling me my 9 year old nephew has a bad habit at chewing the skin around his finger tips. To the point it got infected real bad and swelled up with puss and she had to take a needle and pop it and pinch it so the puss would come out. I guess it hurt him so bad before she did that, that it was throbbing all night and he couldnt sleep. :(. I think his mom was going to take him to the doctors, I hope.
