In brief: Very unlikely

The problem is that OCD is the "doubting disease" and reassurance may not relieve your worries.

In brief: Not likely

Our bodies are miracles.
They are very capable of fighting overwhelming odds and healing. Just touching you lip to a shopping cart should cause no concern. Just wash the area once.

In brief: Unlikely.

You'll be fine. Also paranoia is not a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
