Check for a UTI, My mom was pulling and picking at everything and the dr said this agitation was a symptom of a urinary tract infection.

Perhaps her dentist could recommend something - sounds like her teeth could be extremely sensitized for some reason

She has a manicure bi weekly. When she drinks water, she digs at her teeth saying something is stuck in them and does this in public. We have tried to ignore, say something, and it seems that she is getting worse and worse at this habit.
