About Psychodermatology

Psychodermatology is an interesting domain of dermatology that overlaps with psychiatry. This arena in dermatology has received limited diligence, partly due to lack of training in this realm. Psychodermatology or psychocutaneous medicine encompasses disorders prevailing on the boundary between psychiatry and dermatology. This domain of dermatology is not new, but has often received limited attention. Approximately 30-40% patients seeking treatment for skin disorders have an underlying psychiatric or a psychological problem that either causes or exacerbates a skin complaint. Psychodermatology simply refers to the treatment of skin diseases with psychological techniques, such as:Relaxation, Biofeedback, Hypnosis, Meditation etc. Frequently treated conditions are: psoriasis, eczema, hives, genital and oral herpes, acne, warts, skin allergies, pain and burning sensations, hair loss and compulsive skin picking and hair pulling. Psychological or psychiatric treatments are the primary treatments for some dermatological disorders, including trichotillomania and Morgellons
