Koumpounophobia.jpg

Koumpounohobia is the fear of buttons. People with this phobia can be afraid of a certain type of button but not another. Buttons such as the ones on coats, shirts, suits or jeans can trigger this fear. Most people with this phobia will refuse to wear outfits with buttons on them. Many koumpumophobes have reported their fear originating from the children's horror movie "Coraline", a movie where children have buttons sewn onto their eyes. A treatment for this phobia is to have the sufferer wear clothes with buttons for a prolonged amount of time.
