20. Ablutophobia

Each year a number of people are diagnosed with albutophobia, the fear of bathing, showering and washing. The condition tends to have symptoms with a quick on-set and extreme intensity. Those who have this phobia may experience panic attacks just from hearing someone talk about taking a shower. Unlike most rare irrational fears, this one doesn’t respond well to cognitive therapy. In extreme cases, a therapist needs to be present while their patient is bathing 5-10 times before the phobia becomes manageable.

Xanthophobes fear anything yellow. Some have panic attacks just from hearing about the color.¬†Severe xanthophobia is rare but difficult to manage because the variety of anxiety triggers can prevent sufferers from ever getting to their therapist’s office. They are afraid of the sun, autumn leaves and even their own urine.
