How can I prevent my 2 year old to stop picking at her spider bites on her face?

Put her in gloves: If you really want her to stop you can fasten gloves on her hands that she cannot remove. In the hospital we put their upper arms in a soft splint that prevents them bending their elbow, which stops the picking.If neither are acceptable, just accept you cannot control a 2 yo and let her be.
