Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr. Sriguru,

Thanks for posting your query.

I'm sorry to say that there are no fear extinction medicines.

D-cycloserine would not help you. I'm sorry that other medicines have not worked also for you.

Cleaning objects with spirit or alcohol does not make them brand new. They do make them untouched. In fact, they make the objects sterilized. It's a good hygienic practice to follow.

In my suggestion, Psychotherapy sessions would help you. I would suggest you consult a psychiatrist or psychotherapist for counseling sessions because the main line of treatment for OCD is psychotherapy.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have more concerns or queries.

Take care.

Regards,
Dr Shanthi E
