I heard there are people who are afraid of tape, such as duct tape, tesa film and stickers.

I tried to find the name of the symptom, but I couldn't find it. Is there a medical term for it, like "-phobia"?

Pittakionophobia = fear of stickers and sticky labels

Clinical phobias are usually named after the Greek words for things. A more direct Greek translation of the English word “tape” is ταινία, but taeniophobia refers to the fear of tapeworms.

  • Well, to be honest, I have Pittakionophobia it sucks and people think it's not a real phobia but put anything sticky on me then I start to freak out
