Hello it's more or less like an obsessive compulsive disorder you should stop thinking about it try to divert your mind...keep yourself busy or else if you continue to eat other materials you will land up in severe anemia...you can even practice meditation consult psychiatrist for further evaluation and treatment.... I hope this helps to solve your problem.
