Since last six seven years I became more cleanliness conscious, frequently washing my hands using more soap, taking longer time for bath/freshen up, this habit is getting severe day by day, some times I even avoid shaking hands wid people. Please advise.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over. It's a neurochemical disturbance in brain and worsens due to stressful environment. OCD is typically treated with medication, psychotherapy or a combination of the two.
