If you are on this website then you most likely have or know someone that has Erythrophobia.
Erythrophobia is “the fear of blushing”.
Mostly the reason people blush is in the mind, so its classified as a fear.
I have found that people who have erythrophobia don’t just have a fear that makes them blush. They also have an overactive sympathetic nerve that helps contribute to the condition.
I have spoken to a neurologist about this.
In almost all cases of erythrophobia that he has treated, patients have an overactive sympathetic nerve. He says that it is mostly from genetics, he believes that if someone already has low self-confidence combined with a bad blushing episode they will have a bigger chance of having an overactive sympathetic nerve. Meaning more chance of getting this condition.
Confusing I know!
In Real simple terms.
If you have someone in your family that has had this condition then you are more likely to get it. If you have low self-confidence combined with an overactive sympathetic nerve then you are likely to have it.
You can actually have this nerve cut in ETS surgery but it is not recommended because of many possible side effects.
