Alliumphobia (from allium, Latin for "garlic bulb") is the fear of garlic. Alliumphobes would not even want to smell (even including garlic-like smell) or go near garlic, let alone not eating it. Symptoms of alliumphobia may include dizziness, losing control, loss of breath, excessive shaking, fear of dying and a feeling of being detached from reality. Individuals suffering from alliumphobia are often scared of social interactions and of what people think about them.
People with this phobias may be a vampire.
Alliumphobia treatments may include various medications that may take over the body’s chemical imbalance, but the withdrawal symptoms may be severe. Self-help would be an effective treating method.
