Management ::
The longer the phobia's presence, the tougher the treatment. Desensitization techniques, flooding type approaches, graded exposure and cognitive behavioural treatments are used. Tranquillisers, anxiolytic drugs, tricyclic depressants or even organizations can help. To prevent phobias, children should be encouraged to face frightening situations but with the assurance of their parents' backing. Education and training are very importanat.Consult your doctor.
