Default Is it that dangerous to constantly disinfect things?

So I've been having a tough time with my OCD lately. I am constantly wiping/cleaning/disinfecting items that I use daily. I regularly use Clorox wipes, Lysol aerosol, lysol wipes, wet ones, and alcohol prep pads, hand sanitizer on mostly items I have to touch. I also even use above items on my hands. You could probably imagine that they sometimes burn from the constant use of cleaning chemicals. I have although only been using Lysol and Lysol wipes in the bathroom and not room anymore. My parents have been warning me that I should really stop using so many cleaning chemicals because I could possibly contract some type of lung problem from the chemical fumes (especially the Lysol aerosol) or even a superbug because I'm constantly using the cleaning chemicals. I don't know who else may have this problem, but I just can't seem to stop so is it really that dangerous to constantly disinfect items that I use/touch?
