Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Psychological problems in children are often complex and need a very detailed evaluation before arriving at a diagnosis. Often multiple sessions and history from different caregivers is necessary. Many of your child's symptoms could be indicative of a childhood obsessive compulsive disorder
. But like I said before this can be confirmed only after a detailed history and psychological assessment. If this is the diagnosis, then she may need to be started on medication.
I think her psychiatrist
is doing the right thing by assessing her properly before making any decisions regarding starting medication. So, please discuss about the plan of treatment with her psychiatrist.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
