Co-worker Does Not Allow Me To Work

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about sitting idle:

In my department I just have one co-worker and a supervisor. I just joined one month back and my co-worker has been working here for the past three months. But from the first week I came, my co-worker has caused problems for me. He is a little girlish, but that’s not the problem. The problem is he does not allow me to do any work. Whatever work comes, he takes it and does it by himself. If I start doing some work, he will stop me half way by doing something and take over. This is causing a bad impression in the eyes of my superior, as he only sees me sitting idle. I even tried talking to him. But it did not make any difference.I just don’t know what to do. Please help. Thanks.
