Dentist Dr. E. Bharathikannan's  Response
hello krismas,
is your son biting off the skin over lips ? if it is so then it isnt a sound habit. advice your child about its consequences and educate him about that habit (can be effectively done by a dentist). if problem persist there are various safe and painless habit breaking appliances available for kids such as oral screen, lip bumper . take care.
