Treatment of trypophobia

If you cannot find any other physical illness as the cause of trypophobia, it is likely you will be referred to a psychiatrist or psychologist. Treatment of trypophobia disorders often involves a combination of psychotherapy and medication.
Remedies for trypophobia are often called the "tranquilizers" because they relax and soothe. These drugs work by reducing the physical symptoms of trypophobia as muscle tension. Common medications used are: Xanax, Librium, Valium and Ativan.
Antidepressants: Paxil, Effexor, Prozac, Lexapro and Zoloft are also used to treat trypophobia. Antidepressants take longer to take effect but because they are better suited for long-term treatment of trypophobia.
Cognitive- behavioral therapy is presented to the patient to learn to identify and change the thoughts and behaviors that lead to feelings of trypophobia. This therapy helps to limit irrational behavior so that concerns look more realistic.
Tips for trypophobia people
Reduce or completely stop consuming products containing caffeine (coffee, tea, coca cola, chocolate)
Ask your pharmacist before taking supplements or drugs without a prescription because many contain substances that can worsen the symptoms of trypophobia
Exercise daily and eat healthy
Look for advice or comfort after a traumatic or stressful situations
Practice stress reduction techniques such as yoga or meditation
Start doing something to eliminate attention from worries and trypophobia

However, the best advice we can give you if you suffer from any form of trypophobia is to visit a psychologist or psychiatrist as soon as possible. Delaying the solution of any problem can only magnify the problem.
