Keraphobia or kerasophobia (from Greek keras, "horn") is the fear of horns. Sufferers would fear horn as an outgrowth that extended from the animal head or the sound signal made by a vehicle. The cause is often due to a traumatic experience involving horns, like getting stabbed or poked by a horn or getting annoyed by horn sounds. Sufferers would stay away from animals that have horns, like rhinoceros, or staying home all the times while not having any windows open while hiding and covering ears occasionally. Symptoms of keraphobia include nausea, trembling, dizziness, and heart palpations.
