According to Metro, Phoebe Tann, 19, said that the phobia developed when she was 13 years old after her mother asked her to buy toilet roll from a shop.
"I got to the aisle and I couldn't do it," she admitted. "I froze and then I just had to get out of there.
"My mum thought it was an excuse because I was too embarrassed to be seen carrying toilet roll. But something clicked in my head and sent me in a big panic."
Tann continued: "I know it's a weird phobia."
As a result of the phobia, any toilet roll in her house is covered by her mother. Furthermore, only one roll is kept in the bathroom at any one time.
Tann's fear often doesn't manifest itself in public toilets due to rolls usually being kept behind metal cages.
Earlier this year, it was reported that a mother-of-four had a fear of metal cutlery, while a waitress in Southampton has a phobia of tomatoes.
