Transmission of microbes
According to experts, the harmful habit is a hotbed of microbes as well as the nails are carrying a family of bacteria called εντεροβακτήρια and they include salmonella and e.coli.
When the bacteria that get in the mouth and in the stomach, causing gastrointestinal infections often lead to diarrhea and terrible pains in the abdomen.
The claws can also find “shelter” the viruses that cause respiratory infections, like the flu and common cold points from the side of the dr. Lawrence E. Gibson, professor of Dermatology in the Medical School of Mayo, in Rochester, Minnesota.

Another equally serious problem, stresses dr. Sir, according to iatropedia, is an infection that is called paronychia and is characterized by invasion of bacteria deep into the skin.

Causing pus, redness and “swelling” on the skin of the nail and often require surgical treatment and treatment with antibiotics or antifungal drugs.
Skewing teeth
Because, however, the ονυχοφαγία is extremely common in children and adolescents, it can create a problem even in the teeth. “Depending on the age of onset and the duration of the ονυχοφαγίας, the constant biting can lead to poor convergence of the teeth, change the shape of the front teeth or in the παρεκτόπισή,” concludes dr.
