4 year old with sudden onset of OCD

Hello moms,
I hope you can help this very worried mother of a beautiful 4 year old. In the last 3 weeks, my beautiful daughter has begun to obsess over the smell of her hands and panties. She thinks they smell like pee. It doesn't matter if she just washes her hands or if her underwear is clean, she refuses to touch panties and if she does touch them she must wash her hands. Today I experienced her excessively using baby wipes, almost using the whole packet. She would not let me or her dad or baby brother touch her because she thinks that we touched panties. I am beyond my self and so extremely upset because of what's happening to my baby. Tonight she wouldn't let me touch her, dry her hair or worst of all kiss her tonight- she told me "in the morning mommy. If I stop her from washing her hands, she goes into fits.
I appreciate your advise. I will be seeking doctor advise also this week but would appreciate your feedback or experiences too.
Thank you for reading!
