In brief: MD and ERP

When unwanted thoughts and urges to compulse occur go see your pcp to rule out medical cause; especially, in kids.
Untreated disease (like strep) can trigger ocd symptoms and lead to a condition called pandas. In order to treat the anxiety caused by the ocd, a physician should recommend an evaluation by a cognitive behavioral therapist and erp treatment.
