Anyone know anything about this? My mother, goes through cycles of this. She has thrown out brand new beds and couches, sets off bug bombs in her home, and gives herself lice treatments. I don't know what to do!
Is she diagnoised with anything? OCD? Anxiety. People can fully convinve themselves that there are parasites everywhere and can not relax until they believe all of them are gone. There are medication for this but the best thing is therapy.
