Special Issue Information

Modern psychodermatology significantly relies on the bio‐psycho‐social model. The psychosomatic manifestation, risk factor interactions, and mechanism of various skin diseases remain largely unexplored. We encourage submissions in the following categories:

  1. A primary skin disease that can be triggered or made worse by stress or related psycho-social factors, e.g., acne, eczema, psoriasis.
  2. Skin diseases, showing limited general health impacts, cause stigmatizing and appearance concerns. They usually lead to agony, mood symptoms, and somatic discomfort, such as alopecia areata, vitiligo, and others.
  3. An existing mental health condition results in skin conditions, including skin picking due to anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder, Trichotillomania, and others.

In this special issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may focus (but are not limited to) the psychosocial comorbidities in skin disease, consultant liaison research in dermatology, psychological interventions, psychotropics usage in common chronic skin diseases, and others.
