From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trypophobia is a fear of an irregular pattern of holes or bumps.[1]

Some people feel the holes are "disgusting and gross." Others feel nauseated and itchy, have panic attacks, sweat or feel their heart pound. It may be that some brain responses associate the holes with danger.[2]
