Obsessive Compulsive disorder or OCD grows from obsessions and compulsions of a human being. It is a type of anxiety disorder, which is controlled by unwanted thoughts and repetitive actions. Being driven by the obsession, the affected person keeps on doing the same thing again and again. Even if the affected persons know about their obsessions and compulsions, they cannot control the behavior.
The symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive disorder, varies from case to case. A person with obsession of germs might wash their hands number of times a day. Similarly, if someone is obsessed with intruders, he/she can check the lock of the door several times before going to bed or leaving the home. Along with behavioral problems, one can have eating disorder, depression or other type of anxiety disorder. OCD can run across generations or can be related to emotional health of a person.
Treatment of OCD is primarily performed through psychiatric counseling and anti-anxiety medications. Self-help groups or health forums can also deal this problem quite successfully. It takes quite some time to relieve the patient completely from Obsessive Compulsive disorder.
