Trypanophobia or fear of injections
It is identified as one of the most common phobias among human beings and it is estimated that about 10% of the total population suffers from it to some degree. In early childhood its first symptoms can be perceived, since it is when we receive more vaccines and the surprise of facing a needle does not leave many happy.
Many of these phobias come from a bad experience in childhood, which is why these reactions are so exacerbated in adulthood.
It is suggested not to threaten children with using injections as a form of punishment, since this can lead to sequelae of this type in very sensitive people.
The sensations of those who experience this phobia are related to anxiety, sweating, rapid heart rate and in cases even crying.
The advisable thing to combat this phobia is to apply relaxation techniques related to breathing and concentration.
