Umbrella term for all kinds of phobias, excluding social phobias (Anxiety disorder and Agoraphobia).

A phobia is an excessive and irrational fear reaction.

Most phobias are classified into three categories:

  • Specific phobia: Fear of particular objects or social situations that immediately results in anxiety and can sometimes lead to panic attacks.
    It may be further subdivided into five categories:
    -> Animal type – Fear of spiders, insects, dogs
    -> Natural environment type – Fear of water (aquaphobia), heights (acrophobia), lightning and thunderstorms (astraphobia), or aging (gerascophobia).
    -> Situational type – Fear of small confined spaces (claustrophobia), or the dark (nyctophobia).
    -> Blood/injection/injury type – this includes fear of medical procedures, including needles and injections (trypanophobia), fear of blood (hemophobia) and fear of getting injured.
    -> Other – children's fears of loud sounds or costumed characters.

  • Agoraphobia: a generalized fear of leaving home or a small familiar 'safe' area, and of possible panic attacks that might follow. It may also be caused by various specific phobias such as fear of open spaces, social embarrassment (social agoraphobia), fear of contamination (fear of germs, possibly complicated by obsessive-compulsive disorder) or PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) related to a trauma that occurred out of doors.

  • Social phobia, also known as social anxiety disorder, is when the situation is feared as the person is worried about others judging them.
