← Back to: List of phobias
Ebulliophobia (from Latin ebullio, "bubble", "boil") is the fear of bubbles. People suffering this fear would avoid looking at liquids and soap that might bubble, as well as bubblewrap, chewing gum, and even foods that are prone to bubble. The common causes of fear are dislike or annoyance of hearing bubbles, getting scared by the loud pop of bubblewrap, and getting scalded by boiling water. Sufferers may feel real anxious when hearing bubbles in their own stomach and may worry that the stomach may burst.
