My 3.5yo is obsessed with touching the moles on my neck. I have had two removed so far as she would pick at them until they bled. She since found another one on my neck, and has to touch it, stroke it, scratch it, mainly just touch it and rub it. She touches it to fall asleep, to calm down, when she’s having a cuddle. On really bad nights she comes to our bed and has to touch it ALL night, as soon as her finger comes off the mole she cries, and strokes my whole face, neck, head, searching in her sleep for the mole. During the day if she touches it it’s like she’s gone into a very calm trance, eyes glaze over etc.
She can verbalise “i just love your mole, I just want to touch it, it’s my mole, don’t cut it off, it’s like a pop it”
I bought her a “pop it” sensory toy hoping it would help & it hasn’t.
I just don’t know what to do, it’s such a weird obsession.
