What is Arachnophobia

Arachnophobia is the fear of spider of other arachnids, such as scorpions.

Symptoms

People with arachnophobia may experience an uneasy feeling going into a vicinity where a spider could be present. If they see a spider, they won't even go NEAR the area where it is. This could result in a panic attack, crying, screaming, trouble breathing, excessive sweating or even heart trouble with something like this. In some severe cases, when some people see a picture or very realistic drawing of a spider, it can cause them to experience these symptoms. ((That is me, I am TERRIFIED of spiders and can't even look at pictures of them without freaking out.))

Treatment

Treatment for arachnophobia can be done using system desensitization. This is exposure to spiders and other arachnids. This could involve using real life spiders to help you overcome your fear.
