Health Tip: Dealing With Social Phobia


(HealthDay News) -- Social phobia is an irrational fear of social situations, including being judged or scrutinized by others.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine suggests these potential remedies for coping with social phobia:

  • Receiving cognitive behavioral therapy to help identify the causes of such fears and learning ways to control them.
  • Slowly beginning to attend parties and other social gatherings.
  • Practicing social skills in a group therapy setting.
  • Getting plenty of sleep and exercise, and eating meals on a regular schedule.
  • Limiting or avoiding caffeine, over-the-counter cold medications and other stimulant medications.
