Do I have Pure-O?

For the past maybe year or two or so I have have been consistently terrified of getting sick at all times. I am often preoccupied by these fears but thought since I don't count, or check, or yada yada that there was no way it could be OCD (I do wash my hands 10-15 times a day, but never for extended amounts of time). Then I heard about this Pure-O thing: though many descriptions say it pertains mostly to fears about violence, sexuality, etc., would this qualify? I cannot touch something that someone who is sick has touched.. I use tissues with basically all surfaces, open doors with my elbows, and hold my breath if walking by an area in which a person has just coughed. Is this a form of OCD?
