  1. I got 17 but I wasnt scared much because Those are Original holes but When searching the word trypophobia I shake and like Close my Phone Fast its really disturbing While taking this Test for some reason i keep scratching my chest It became red How do I cure ?

    1. When i saw something that disgust me, i always said to my self, i’ve seen worst, and my brain sent out the signal, that allows me to counter my fear.. Because fear, pain and sort of emotion such as feeling disgust comes from your brain.. Even when i’m internally or externally wounded, i send signal to my brain that it doesn’t hurt, and the pain will decreased immediately like i feel nothing at all. Sorry my english sucks..

  2. I got 24, god when saw those pictures i was freaked right out i swear i nearly had a panic attack because of me breathing so fast. Im still recovering now

  3. it took me 30 minutes to shake some of my feelings loose. I am still slightly getting the chills. I scored a 27. I never knew what was wrong with me I couldn’t understand why I would feel this way, but you see mines isn’t just holes its also slits. my goodness I am still trying to shake this feeling.

    I am so glad to know that it is a phobia and I’m not the only one who has this

  4. I got a 21. I am currently a teenager and have always had a fear of holes. My first distinct memory is feeling sick while staring at a crumpet from a young age. Ever since I have got better with the crumpet but I have always had nightmares of holey skin and while doing the test, I was shaking and itching, on the point of tears. I can’t talk to anyone about this because no one understands how much I go through when I see something with disfigured holes. My dad laughs at me and makes fun of it when its really becoming an issue in everyday life. I would really appreciate some advice about this. I know majority of the images on the internet are photoshopped but that doesn’t stop me from feeling sick and dizzy. I once nearly threw up because of it. Please help

  5. I NEVER KEPT TRACK OF MY SCORE HERE I GIVE THEM ALL ONE HUNDREDS!!! Except the lion tongue and that weird plant thing. Im used to cat tongues and the way they feel is so cool. And the plant one just for some reason didn’t freak me out. I’m 12 and my friends don’t understand it and they think Im afraid of any hole like their mouth hole. I tried explaing it to them but they don’t take it seriously and they make fun of me.

    1. Yea it probably would that is one symptom it doesn’t have to be that you get scared. So yea I would say you have mild possibly a little worse tryphobia.

    2. Being scared isn’t a big part of it, it’s more feeling obsessively grossed out and disgusted to the point of feeling sick and dizzy.

  6. OMG I am so trypophobic it isn’t funny I don’t even need to score these photos I get cold flushes so easily and feel so sick I also feel nauseous and my heart beats like the speed of light years and I get so sesitive to anything I feel I get bad chills too I can’t Astor drink sometimes as well I have EXTREME trypophobia.

    1. Same but I felt so bad for the little puppy and it also grossed me out but the bugs and plants and lion tongue didnt gross me out

  7. Omg I got a 25. I always hated this stuff so so much. I refused to bake with this after running away in fear, crying after seeing clustered up red pepper seeds. I watched this video and looked into it thinking I may have it. The first picture sent my kindle on the floor!

  8. I got 22 I only came across the term a few weeks ago and was so relieved to know what it was. Even though I’m scared or other things like spiders it’s no where near as bad. I could barely look at these photos.

  9. 23.. I literally was vomiting looking at these pics. I had to hurry past them. I am definitely going to have nightmares now…

  10. 22. Can properly feel my heart pounding in my chest, can’t stop itching and nearly threw up, need a shower! didn’t fully look at some of some, couldn’t do it

  11. 20. That was so hard to look at especially the hand with the bug. The tongue didnt bother me though. I didnt like that at all.

  12. Hey! I got a 0, I really love looking at images like this! Gives Me a weird feeling, but a good one. Like I’m really intrigued by them!

  13. I got a 0 and actually found a few of these highly intriguing, always loved things like squeezing worms out of my animals wounds and sanitising them and just looking at how clean it gets.
    not some of them, though. they kick and it hurts.

  14. my score is 22. i cant explain the feeling while im looking the pictures a bit nervous so disgusting.. but i still want to see the pictures even if im a bit scared..

  15. i mean i didnt mind looking at them but it wasnt pleasant , i t makes me kinda want to help the person an like shave off the holes or pluck em out w tweezers .

  16. Hmm… hard to say, frankly I was disgusted by every picture just as much as i’d be if i were looking at an open wound or necrosing tissue. Despite of the disgust I could look at it for pretty much as its necessary, I guess I just find it something gross after all?

  17. 20.
    When I was a child, I had recurring nightmares about my skin being covered in holes with seeds in them. The seeds looked like sunflower kernels. The nightmare was very real. I was sexually molested, repeatedly, as a child and I have C-Ptsd with DD. This fear has never left me, but I try to look at pics and comprehend they are not real. However, lately, my skin persistently itches and my mind feels like these things will begin appearing on skin. I have always felt, in my adult life, that this fear comes from the shame and disgust of having been sexually abused

  18. I received a 21. My mom is one person who always thinks I’m being dramatic when I tell her I am terrified of little holes clustered together. Ant hills get me REALLY bad but she’s always just told me that I need to grow up. I’m so happy to know that there is actually something out there that can put a name to my irrational fears. I don’t even know what it is about them, my body just tenses up, I break out in goosebumps EVERYWHERE and it just feels like my skin is crawling. I hate it. I’ve tried exposing myself to pictures so that way maybe my brain can get used to seeing it but no, if anything all it does is make me lose the contents in my tummy. I feel like such a weirdo.

  19. My score was 30, I always wondered what was wrong with me
    I’m sort of happy there is an actual name but now I can look
    Anything up on the Internet as everytime a effing horrid
    Image turns up. Is it common that a reaction is swearing?

  20. Isn't there an element of disease in these pictures? Like flesh eating infections or parasites?
    What if it was just a picture of holes in Swiss cheese or a stainless steel drain cover?

    1. 19. All of it it scares the hell outta me. I keep focing myself but i just feel like throwing up, my feet and palm is sweating just looking it from a far and my head hurts everytime i try not to throw up
