Peladophobia: The Fear of Bald People

Peladophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of bald people.  Those who suffer from this phobia may avoid social activities because they fear that they may come in contact with bald people.  Peladophobics usually fear becoming bald themselves. This is known as Phalacrophobia.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
