Hi! I have a 6 year old son who lately has been spitting a lot. He's always running to a trash can to spit. When asked about why he does it, he gives a variety of reasons, one of which he's afraid that if someone talks to him up close, the germs from the other person(saliva) will go to his mouth. If you accidentally touch his mouth, he'll spit. Or if he smells something he doesn't like, he spits. Lately, he keeps saying his pants are wet-as if he'd peed by accident-but if you touch it, its really not. He also likes to keep his door to his room locked at night, and he's always reminding me at night to check all the doors of the house to make sure its locked. HELP! Is this OCD? And if yes, what kind of doctor should we see?
