Hi there. I am a Dermatologist
& the only reason i felt obliged to comment is because i noted you said you lived in Abu-Dhabi.I dont know much about alternative medicine but have lived & worked in Abu-Dhabi for more than 3 decades & know how these things can affect you at both in the home & work-place & the social structure is not as supportive as back home in India with the family unit
et al. OCD
or obsessive compulsive disorder
prevalance is quite high amongst most of us. Usually these are labelled 'traits' & are manageable & kept under control. Here Obviously judging by your lengthy observations, you seem to be rather 'stressed' yourself with your husband's trait's or disease. Please go across to NMC (new medical centre) on Electra street where they have a Dr. Ravi (psychiatry) or to the Psychiarist at Ahalia Hospital (hamdan Street)..the latter is a malayalee so you will presumably be more comfortable. You may use my reference if it helps you in any way. I dont think one should wait in such instances for alternative medicines to work & you have waited close to 3 yrs! Besides, it does appear that your husband's condition is worsening so probably in your best interests to start allopathic medication
. Cheers & Wish You Good Health!
