Psychodermatology comprises three patient groups:

  1. Patients who visit the dermatologist, but have a primary psychiatric disorder, among which are Body Dymorphic Disorder (BDD), skin picking, facticious disorders or delusional parasitosis.
  2. Patients developing psychiatric disorders or psychological problems such as depression or coping problems as a consequence of their -often chronic- skin disease.
  3. Patients with psychosocial problems such as financial problems, problems at work or other stress factors that affect the development, course and treatment of skin diseases.
