Licking Hands

by Paul
(Oxford)

My son is 4 years old and have started to lick my hands, his father's hands and other people hands. I asked him why he is doing it and he tell me he do not know.


Can anyone tell m what to do about this problem?

Thank you.

Have you talked to anyone in the medical field about the possibility of Tourette Syndrome? My son has TS and although he doesn't exhibit this particular tic, there is someone in his support group that struggled with this tic. You can also search for TS online and see a list of tics to see if your child is experiencing other tics that aren't as noticeable (like eye blinking, throat clearing, etc.). I don't know if that might be the deal but just thought I'd mention it.
