Literally, an irrational fear of water, to drink or to swim in. Someone who is scared of the water is hydrophobic. A term once commonly used for rabies because in the later stages of that disease, the animal (or person) has difficulty swallowing and so fears a drink of water.

  • Gastrointestinal: nausea or vomiting
  • Muscular: muscle spasms or paralysis with weak muscles
  • Sensory: pins and needles or sensitivity to light
  • Behavioural: aggression or irritability
  • Also common: anxiety, brain death, coma, difficulty swallowing, dilated pupil, drooling, excess salivation, headache, mental confusion, seizures, or stiff neck

CAUSES

Transmitted through animal’s bite which are already affected by the deadly rabis virus.
