I know this has been touched on, but is there any correlation (sp?) between chewing and pimples around the mouth area? I know there's lots of bacteria under your nails and whatnot so I was wondering if anyone else suffers from this? Around 75% of the pimples I get nowadays are around my mouth and I'm quite sure it's due to my excessive chewing lol

There may be a correlation, but I don't seem to have one with myself. I don't do it anymore, but it was one of my bad habits in high school, and I have never had a problem around my mouth.

Thanks for the replies.

BTW Deena - Is there any special way you kicked it for good or.....? I've been chewing my nails since like I was 10 years old and while I can stop for a few weeks, sometimes I just get bored and start chewing again. My self-control sucks
