Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

As such there in need to wash head, bathroom walls & toilet and hands repetitively.
You are suffering from Obsessive compulsive disorder, a neurotic psychiatric disorder.

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry; repetitive behaviors helps in reducing the associated anxiety.
Mentioned repetitive behavior is common type of obsession.
OCD sufferers generally recognize their obsessions and compulsions as irrational, and may become further distressed by this realization.
Obsessions are thoughts that recur and persist despite efforts to ignore them.
All these behavior is due to neurotransmitter imbalance at neuronal level.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ psychiatrist and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for proper counsellings with your treating doctor.
Your treatment includes behavioral therapy and medicines.
You have to take selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) for getting relief.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,

Can you clear using one time soap is sufficeint & daily not to wash bathroom after bathing which your bathing water drops wall & toilet daily washin heads is ok or there may be some problem
Answered by Dr. Mayank Bhargava 6 hours later
!00% germs clearance is not possible with each & every effort.
Still one time soap application is sufficient for clearance of head and body and there is no need of repetitive washing of bathroom walls and toilet.

My daughter is currently taking Paxil for anxiety and severe OCD. She recently found out that she is pregnant. She has been on 30 mg. for about 4years. She was told to take 10 mg. twice a day for a week and then 10 for one week. She could not deal with the change.
What alternative drug could she take that is safe. Her OCD's and anxiety are pretty intense without the Paxil. Thank you for your time.
