i have OCD and have had many strange phobias come and go. Chrematophobia- Fear of money, is one of them. I wouldnt touch money or anything that money had touched. When i had to touch money id wrap my hands in my sleeves, and if i somehow did touch money i would have anxiety attacks and have to wash my hands with really hot water and soap. i was afraid of the germs and whatever else might be on it.

Leukemiophobia is part of cancerophobia and is a serious problem when it touches you.
If you leave it alone it often leads to cod liver oil intoxication (a pretty bad syndrome).
Scientific forums help in smoldering this particular type of phobia.
Thank you

Right, dont laugh but i have a genuine fear of cleaning materials and washing up... I have had it for all the past 5 or 6 years and it is really embarassing. At 15 i should get over it but i cant seem to. I feel like my life is going to fail and it will develop further into other things.
