← Back to: List of phobias
Pagophobia (from Greek pago, "ice") is the fear of ice or frost. Some might have developed this fear because they might have had a near death experience or traumatic experience with ice or snow. One might have been involved in a snowboarding accident or a vehicular accident where in one lost control of the car because of the slippery road due to ice. Some may feel anxious upon looking at an ice cube. Most pagophobis would not eat ice. It can be treated mostly using psychotherapy.
