Yes this is a kind of obsessive compulsive disorder and is easily treatable.
Ask your GP to refer you to a psychiatrist so that they can give you a prescription for chronic medication and organize some behavioural therapy for you. This is quite common and nothing to be ashamed of as it is probably caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain and not really something you can always "control".
