Conclusion: Patients with chronic dermatologic diseases are at high risk of developing psychological problems which may continue even after improvement of skin disease. The associated psychiatric disorders can range from short episodes of depression to major depression, anxiety, obsessive–compulsive disorders, and sleep disorders and can even extend to suicidal ideation and suicidal attempts.
