My mother-n-law has a picking problem. She picks at her face, arms & legs leaving sores that bleed. Is that normal and is there anything we can do to help her stop. Thank YOU!

Hi! Sounds like an Obsessive-Compulsive Disordered behavior. This isn’t uncommon in dementia care, but I honestly haven’t seen it too frequently. I’d recommend asking a physician about anti-anxiety medication, which is generally one treatment for OCD.
