sbgrace Posted June 20, 2012 Share Posted June 20, 2012 This is weird but I'm going to post because maybe someone will have an idea or experience to help. My spectrum son has a habit of wiping his mouth constantly. He also has an immune system disorder (IgA deficiency) that results in him catching some spectacularly horrible GI bugs and not fighting them well. So this habit is not good in terms of him getting sick so much. He used to use his hand and after a ton of stomach bugs we worked on breaking that habit. He switched it to wiping his face on his shirt sleeve and when we talked about that being gross so it went to his shirt shoulder. That went on for a solid year. Recently after yet another round of sick we decided to work on it. He was so proud of himself and now he's back to the back of his hand! It's making me nuts. There is no "clean" alternative to suggest is there? Assuming not what's the least germy thing for him to wipe his mouth on? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
