Cryophobia (Fear of Cold) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Cryophobia is an abnormal and persistent fear of cold, including cold weather and cold objects. Sufferers from cryophobia experience anxiety even though they realize their fear is irrational. To avoid cold, they may live in a warm climate, dress more warmly than necessary, stay indoors on cold days, and avoid cold foods and ice. "Cryophobia" is derived from the Greek kryos (cold, frigid) and phobos (fear). A related term is thermophobia, fear of heat.
