Suffering with social phobia, scared to make eye contact with people, phobia of looking at body parts while speaking. Remedy?

Hi Doctor I am facing a social phobia , like I am not able to make eye contacts with the people I am talking to. Whenever I start speaking to people I have some type of phobia and I will start looking into their body parts. So because of this I try not looking at their faces and I will tell myself not to look at their body parts but it automatically leads me to look at their body parts. Because of this I cannot speak properly to girls as well as men.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello. On the basis of information provided it appear that you are suffering from either social phobia or you have anxious avoidant personality disorder. As far as management is concerned there is no medication which can change you overnight in to a different person. For this you need a psychologist who work with you over these issues and make you learn social skill and you implement them and get over your problem. It a long process of learning and you should be compliant to the advice given in therapy. It is not a easy thing but can be achieved if you have good motivation to get out of it.
Best way is to follow the advice in therapy very sincerely .
