I also suffer from this phobia
by: Anonymous

Hello Friends, Surprise to see you all having same problem. I am 28 year old male.

I am also suffering from same phobia since my childhood. People made me laugh at me & also had made FUN with me by putting cotton at me. I cannot see at RAW cotton, & it makes me very tense when I have to stay nearby cotton.

What i feel, we are having a SPD (Sensory processing disorder), as the color of cotton, & its texture, material information can not process in our mind, thereby it scare to us.

I also tried to get rid of that fear, but as time passes, the fear get away a bit little, it means I can stand near by (about 3-4 feet distance ) cotton, & concentrate it, but when I feel about to touch it & mix with it, it gave me scare.

As far as, if it is my concern, I feel I am having a problem with Sensory processing disorder, as white color of cotton, & its texture scare, but if cotton is died with other color like shard RED, GREEN, BLUE etc., then I can stand near by ( almost at 0 distance).

Till date there might be a solution of this phobia, but friends, try it with different color then come to know, it you suffer from white color or material.

im 12 and r scared of cotton balls too, like sheets and stuff r no prob but the actual cotton balls just mak me clench my head in my hands and fall on the floor cuz my brain cant take it. Texture is a huge part of it. wenever i see 2 cotton balls toutching or rubbing I FLIP OUT! so bad tht i hav 2 be asleep wen my mom takes off my nail polish. it hurts my head like crazy. my fam and ffriends r always making fun of me and i usually scream cuz they throw the cotton at me. its strange and odd but ur not alone :)

I'm pretty much in the same boat as you. I'm 16, and they freak me out too. It's the texture thing that makes me cringe at the very thought.
And I feel for you, with that thing at of my friends put cotton balls in my pencil pouch when I left the room, and then one in my lunch box when a looked away. Ugh.

I also suffer from bambakophobia (fear of cotton) I remember in kindergarten we were making a sheep with cotton balls and I've been scared of it since then. I can touch anything that feels like cotton. It litterally makes me sick to my stomach. I get goose bumps feeling it and feel sick when I touch it and start gagging. My stomach starts to feel empty and my heart starts to feel heavy. People have always laughed at me when I told them I wouldn't touch a cotton ball. The noise it makes when you tear it gives me shivers. thinking about it is making me nausteated. I have people that will try to throw cotton feeling material at me or cotton balls. they think its funny. But i am truely scared. For the longest time i thought it was just me but have found that there are many people who are bambakophobic and it is a real condition. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!!
