The Cause Of Washing Hands / Feet Repeatedly?

Hi dokk, why after doing activities I always want to hurry to wash my feet or hands even something that hasn’t been done yet. I go to the bathroom to wash my feet or hands. Unfortunately, I also like to make sure the clothes or pants that I will use do not have dirt or stains, even though the pat is gone but I feel that it’s dirty and as a result I change clothes until the moment when I feel that I’m always tired of doing that activity over and over again. What is the solution? Thank you

Hello Dewi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.

Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.

The situation that you are experiencing right now is a mental disorder called Obese-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Someone who has OCD has thoughts and drives that are difficult to control and are repetitive. If an action is not done it will cause anxiety in itself. People who experience OCD sometimes do not realize that they are doing something excessive because it seems to be a necessity and an obligation that they do and cannot avoid it.

This OCD can strike all ages, from children to adults. The cause of OCD is also not known with certainty, but there are several things that are risk factors for OCD such as:

 Genetic / hereditary factors A history of bad experiences in an environment that does not support psychic development that causes feelings of wanting to do better / perfect. Obsessions are repetitive thoughts, compulsions, or mental states that cause anxiety. Whereas compulsion is a recurring behavior in someone who feels the urge to do in response to obsessive thinking. This OCD includes excessive cleaning such as repeated hand washing, ordering and arranging things in a special and appropriate way, also can repeatedly check various things, such as examination repeatedly to see if the door is locked or the stove is dead.

Because this OCD treatment must be done regularly, you should consult directly with your psychiatrist / psychiatrist to get treatment as soon as possible. OCD can only be relieved by medication or psychotherapy or both.

That's all the answers I gave.

Thank you, and hopefully always healthy :)
