  1. OCD is one of the disorders of the neurotic spectrum, which is characterized by two symptoms-obsessions and compulsions.

    Obsessions are obsessive thoughts. A person with obsessions is painfully experiencing an influx of thoughts on a certain topic, a classic example is constant thoughts about the possibility of contracting an infection. These thoughts are practically not controlled, they seem to arise by themselves and there is no way to extinguish them. Compulsions are compulsive behaviors generated by obsessions. Continuing with the above example, a person who constantly thinks about infection, washes his hands two hundred times a day.

    Psychotherapeutic and medical treatment – cognitive behavioral therapy and the use of anxiolytics are effective.
