You have been sent spinning by shaytaan. You have to solve the problem yourself and let others help you. The solution is simple:

1) Wash once.

2) Be positive that you are clean and do not listen to the doubts of your mind.

3) Tell someone, like your mother or father, to observe you when you wash your hands and let them stop you when they think you are washing excessively. Listen to them and believe them when they tell you to stop washing.

In this manner, InshaAllaah, in this manner the problem will be resolved.Do not become a sufferer of doubt.�
