Prognosis for OCD

Reading time: 1 min

Many people with OCD wait for years before they visit a professional in order to treat the disorder. The fact is that the symptoms will not disappear without appropriate treatment.

Complications of OCD

In some people with OCD the condition may be accompanied by other problems such as depression or anxiety. What is more, some complications could be a consequence of the patient’s OCD. That is, when someone obsesses about contamination and repeatedly washes their hands, they may develop skin problems as a symptom of their OCD.
