Contamination OCD, also known as Contaminating Obsessions is a specific form obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) characterized by obsessions related to contamination, germs, or cleanliness. People with Contamination OCD experience intense anxiety and distress about the possibility of being exposed to dirt, germs, or substances they perceive as “contaminants.” These obsessions often lead to compulsive behaviors or rituals aimed at reducing their anxiety and preventing contamination.

Common signs of Contamination OCD:

  1. Intrusive Contamination Obsessions:Individuals with Contamination OCD experience recurrent, distressing, and intrusive thoughts or mental images related to contamination. These obsessions can include fears of getting sick, being contaminated by touching objects or surfaces, or spreading germs to others.
  2. Excessive Cleaning and Washing:Compulsive behaviors in Contamination OCD often involve excessive cleaning, showering and handwashing. Individuals may spend hours each day cleaning their surroundings, washing their hands repeatedly, showery excessively or using excessive amounts of soap and water.
  3. Avoidance:To prevent potential contamination, people with Contamination OCD may avoid certain places, objects, or situations they perceive as risky. This avoidance can lead to social isolation and difficulties in daily life.
  4. Compulsive Checking: Some individuals with Contamination OCD engage in compulsive checking behaviors to ensure they have not been contaminated. This might involve repeatedly checking their body for signs of dirt or germs or checking household items for cleanliness.
  1. Fear of Cross-Contamination:Contamination OCD can extend to concerns about cross-contaminating others. Individuals may fear that their actions or touch could harm others by spreading germs.
  2. Safety Behaviors:  People with this subtype of OCD may use safety behaviors to cope with their contamination fears. These behaviors can include wearing gloves, using tissue to touch objects, or carrying hand sanitizers everywhere.
  3. Functional Impairment:Contamination OCD can significantly interfere with daily life, work, and relationships. The excessive time spent on cleaning and washing can lead to job difficulties and strained personal relationships.
  4. Health Anxiety:Contamination OCD is often accompanied by health-related anxiety, as individuals may obsessively worry about getting sick or transmitting illnesses to themselves or others.

Recovery from Contamination OCD

Recovery is possible, based on my own personal experience with OCD and helping people heal from OCD, it involves releasing the repressed fear based emotion that is held at the Subconscious level. We do this by learning to regulate the nervous system with specific Kundalini Breath techniques specific for OCD, Trauma, Tension  and Stress Release Exercises and Emotional Regulation.

Check out Helen Recovery Journey with Contamination OCD:

My battle with OCD manifests itself around fear of contamination where I would constantly be avoiding situations that I would possibly pick up a disease such as HIV.

I would be frightened of touching pedestrian crossing buttons or door handles etc.

I was even scared of stepping in something red on the ground and in thinking it was blood, that it would splash up and maybe get into a cut that I had on my leg.

This caused me enormous distress and would even force me to carry out compulsions such as hand washing and even getting HIV tests in order to ease my anxiety but each time the anxiety was eased, in time it would come back again just as strong.

I knew I had to do something in order to stop this crippling anxiety but I didn’t know what.

I’d attended doctors and they had prescribed me anti-depressants but I hadn’t found they gave me much relief at all.

Then one day I happened to be listening to the radio and I heard a man called Colm talking about his history with OCD. I instantly related to him and when he went on to talk about a form of breathing techniques which is specifically targeted in helping to stop OCD.

Linda went on to say that she was starting up a 12 week program. I immediately knew I had to try it.

I was nervous starting out as OCD had made me lose a lot of my confidence and I thought it would be difficult to socialize with people on the program but Linda totally put me at my ease.

I’ve just finished the program and I feel a lot better. I’m not worrying so much about contamination so much and feel in a much better place.
The breathing exercises are actually very relaxing and allow me to take time out for myself from my busy family life.

During the course, Linda also advises us on our lifestyles such as sleep, diet and alcohol consumption and how it can all affect OCD.
I found this to be very useful.

I would highly recommend anyone who is struggling with OCD to consider going on the program as it certainly has given me back a lot of my life and has allowed me to enjoy it more fully!
