Top 5 Repetitively Cleaning Causes

  1. 1.Acute Bacterial Sinusitis

    Acute bacterial sinusitis occurs when the sinuses become infected and, in turn, inflamed, which causes pain and other symptoms. The sinuses are air-filled cavities in the face that are generally clean and empty but when sick collect excess mucus and can become infected.

    You should visit a physician or urgent care facility in the next day or two. It’s likely your sinus infection is caused by a bacterial infection, which requires treatment with antibiotics. In the mean time, ibuprofen or acetaminophen can be taken to help with pain & fever.

  2. 2.Mild Chronic Depression (Dysthymia)

    Dysthymia, also called persistent depressive disorder, is a form of depression that is chronic. The causes of dysthymia are complex, and often are a combination of biological, genetic, and environmental factors. Dysthymia can interfere with everyday life, and people with this condition report feeling loss of interest in their daily activities, sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of energy.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will likely coordinate care with a psychologist or psychiatrist. Dysthymia is treated similarly to depression with therapy and antidepressant medication.

    Contact your primary care physician to assess how urgent you should plan a visit to further discuss your symptoms. It is likely a referral to a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional will be given. Treatment may include counseling, lifestyle changes, and medication.
