Take a look at that picture. It’s a lotus seed pod. Does it make your skin crawl and itch? You may suffer from Trypophobia.

Although it’s not an officially recognized fear, there’s a movement trying to get it officially recognized and people are petitioning for more research.

Trypophobia is the fear of asymmetrical holes occurring either naturally or unnaturally. Some say that the fear may come from the fact that holes in your skin were a sign of disease, and therefore we are programmed to feel icky about those things.
