Why do I constantly bite my lip?
Hello, I am 22 years old male. I have this habit of constantly biting my lips. I don’t do it consciously but sometimes biting leads to bleeding of my lips. My lips get dry, and while biting it sometimes causes bleeding. I never used to bite my lips when I was younger but now I do it why? Why do I constantly bite my lip? Is it a type of mental illness? Should I be worried?
@tilden Hello, When people are nervous, it is normal for many to bite their lower lips. Lip biting can become a habit for some people, affecting their daily lives. Chronic lip biting is a common nervous. Many people bite their lips when they have anxiety. It's extremely common and occurs not only with anxiety disorders but also with nervous flirting, nervous tension, and just a feeling of something being amiss. It's an unconscious behavior that many people are unaware of, and others struggle to control. If you are worried then you can consult a doctor. Thanks!
