Nail biting cuticle picks

For as long as i remember my cuticles have been torn and weak. I started nail biting to control the cuticle picking but both of them are undying compulsive needs that I can't get past. My cuticles bleed and I have damaged nails that i am super embarrassed of. I need to learn why my mind needs to bite my cuticles and nails and how I can get past this and if there are medicines that i can take for it.

Regarding nail biting you will have to control the urge yourself. Try to avoid situations when there is urge to do so. Apply moisturiser on your cuticles 2-3 times a day and massage from proximal to distal part.
