I have ocd and anxiety So I’ve been washing my hands loads of times that they are chapped and sore but I cant stop washing them as I’m scared that I might get sepsis

Hi,
Health anxiety is horrible, it's very unlikely you'll get sepsis from sore hands.
Use hand creams regularly.
Have you ever had CBT for the anxiety?

Thanks and I’ve just started it so hopefully I’ll get better soon
