Hello. I have a bad habit eating my nails, Im 18 and I been doing it since I was 10 years old. Everytime I want to loose weight I don t see any difference in my body and I don t even eat alot. Plus sometimes Im siting or laying down and I get certain pain on my stomatch Im ot sure whats the cause or everytime I swallow my nails it happens too, I m worried cause I heard it can cause something in your stomatch. Idk what to do? please help?

i have probably 5 or 6 warts on my hands. They normally don t bother me. However, on one of them, the middle is starting to pull away from the rest and looks like it s about to fall off. I tend to bite my nails a lot...bad I know...but without thinking i grabbed a hold of the part that was pulling away and started to pull it away with my teeth. I stopped when I realized what I had grabbed...but now I m worried it will spread warts to my mouth? What do I do?

I m 27, 5 2 , 372 pounds female. Is it possible to break the nail-biting habit (or picking at nails and tearing off of the nails)? I ve gone about a week now without messing with my nails other than to file them a little and paint them with different polishes. Today was (still is) hard on me, I want to pick at them so bad today. How long should I expect this habit to have disappeared if I continue not to pick at them?
