Abstract

Context
The existing literature highlights the association between skin disorders and psychosocial affects; with comorbid psychological conditions including depression and anxiety common among those with dermatological complaints. What remains less clear is the impact of various chronic skin disorders (CSDs) that manifest in visible or intimate areas of the body. The current study seeks to explore the effect of such CSDs on patient sexual function and condition-specific quality of life.
