Children and adults with coulrophobia may try to get away from a clown, hide behind a person or object, or cover their eyes so that they don’t have to see the clown. A child may cry. Sometimes, just the possibility of seeing a clown causes an anxious response.

Other signs of coulrophobia include:

  • Fast breathing and heart rate.
  • An intense feeling of terror.
  • Pale skin.
  • Profuse sweating (hyperhidrosis).
  • Nausea.
  • Trembling or shaking.
