Why do People Eat Scabs?


The reason why some people may eat their scabs, or other weird things could be due to Pica. Most babies, and small children have this condition because they lack nutrients like: iron, zinc, etc.

People eat scabs because they are gross. The same reason why they eat their own boogers. It is a nasty habit and should not be done. If it is a child doing it then you should make them stop.
