My 9 year old son has been pulling his hair for a long time. It started when he was a baby when he would suck his thumb and twirl his hair at the same time. Now he is pulling it out and he has bald patches on his head. He still likes to suck his thumb too...I've caught him in the act before. He would do it all night, but braces and a headgear took care of that. However, I don't know what to do about the hair pulling. He said it feels good. I've always thought it was a self-soothing habit when twirling, but how can pulling it out feel good? Can someone please help?
