Hello Apple,

I understand your distress.
The problem you have is called Pica.
It is often associated with worms in the gut or iron deficiency anemia.
Sometimes there is no cause detected and it may be an obsessive compulsive disorder.
The cause has to be identified and appropriate treatment taken.
I shall be happy to answer if you have more queries.
Take care
Dr. Noble Zachariah
