What Causes Dermatopathophobia?
Dermatopathophobia comes from an unconscious 'overprotection' mechanism.
Dermatopathophobia is usually caused by the mind over-protecting us from something that it believes at some level may be a genuine danger to us, believing that skin diseases presents an actual threat.
Dermatopathophobia is often caused by the 'thoughts' that a person has about things. These thoughts can quickly get caught up in a 'spiral', and when this happens it can bring about a lot of anxiety and stress for the person.
Can Dermatopathophobia Be Treated?
Yes, dermatopathophobia can be treated. Dermatopathophobia responds well to interventions such as hypnotherapy, as well as a more cognitive approach.
This can be done as either self-help, or via one-to-one help with a therapist trained in helping with phobias such as this.
