Fear of earthworms

My 5 year old son has been afraid of earthworms all his life. He is otherwise very bold and fearless. His only other symptom is repeated infections behind his foreskin.
Any ideas?

Ah Bless.

I don't know of any homeopathic remedy for this, but I remember when I was a kid I had a fear of earthworms for a short while as I believed them to be snakes.

From a Darwinian perspective, fearing snakes is a good thing.

Have you tried picking them up to show that they are harmless?

The bottom line is that he will almost certainly grow out of it; don't worry.
