Are You an Aerophobe?

Fear is one of the worst causes of sweat. The fear and adrenaline charge that comes with a scary situation triggers our sweat glands and is caused by our sympathetic nervous system. The fight-or-flight response can get us out of dangerous situations in times when nervousness and alertness levels means the difference between life and death.

For many people, flying is one of their worst nightmares. Fear of flying is called Aerophobia and represents one of the most common phobias that affect humans. The proportion of passengers with fear of flying is 1 to 3, and in some cases becomes so uncontrollable that the airlines have designed their own courses to help customers overcome this fear.

Like any other phobia, a fear of flying is experienced in different degrees. The most serious cases being panic attacks, dizziness, vomiting, severe sweats, contractures and an absolute inability to control one’s feelings. Specialists express that this is one of the easiest phobias to eliminate. Simple courses and appropriate therapeutic help can the person stop suffering the debilitating fear of flying.

Sometimes, a simple sedative can restore peace, but always after consulting your doctor and receiving a prescription. As for the unpleasant feeling of excess sweat, you can try Perspirex; an antiperspirant proven to effectively help control excessive sweating.
