    For few years now i have Germaphobia. when i go to school it OK, but when i come home from school or shopping It's a problem because I go and wash my hands, my arms, my hair. I just can't stop my self. For example when i go to school and if one of friend touch my hair i will come home and wash it for long time, because I just think I got germ in my hair because he touched me. also when i come home i don't let anyone touch me because i got my uniform on and i think i got germ on them because other people were around me. I don't get my books out because it was in school and there might be germ on them. I went to doctor but it didn't help.
    I also think by touching someone or something I will get germ from them. for example if some come in and sit on my sofa i will never sit on it because if i sit on it i will get the germ form the sit, I thry to stop my self but i just can't.

    I really don't want this but I just can't stop. Please help how i can get better. If some had or you know had germphobia PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN GET BETTER.
