My daughter's PTSD triggers are around masks of any kind, gloves, or strangers of any kind.

Halloween for her is pure hell. She totally freaks over the paraphernalia, some of which I don't blame her. She also hates movie posters or movie displays like the kind seen in [a local department store]. She freaks over book covers with any super hero or masked people on the front. Masks totally terrify her. Even the Febreeze commercial where the woman wears the ski mask while cleaning her house, creates many anxious questions on why she is doing that from my daughter. I have often wondered why she has such an extreme reaction to these things. I suspect medical procedures may be the culprit for the fear of gloves and maybe even masks. I am not sure though.
