What is the fear of blood (Hemophobia)?
This fear can become so extreme that even the sight of blood can cause people to pass out. This is a symptom that is not really attributed to other fears. The fear usually comes with a fear of the sight of blood, but will sometimes manifest itself as a fear of needles or going to the hospital. For obvious reasons, this can become a serious issue. The fear can stem from different sources, either trauma, anxiety, overbearing caregivers, or genetics. Symptoms can range from tantrums in children to severe panic attacks in adults. CBT and Exposure therapy can be used to treat the fear as well as self-help through VR. We're adding Hemophobia to our App - Want to get updates when the Hemophobia levels are live?
