Background and Aim: Skin diseases are associated with a set of psychological disorders that not only affects the patient, but also has a huge burden on the patient’s family and the wider society. The main purpose of the present study was to compare the severity of psychologic symptoms in patients with skin diseases and healthy participants.

Methods: In this study, 305 participants aged from 16-85 years (153 cases and 152 controls) were enrolled. Data including demographic variables, in addition to psychiatric variables such as Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale (DASS), Maudsley Obsessive Compulsive Inventory (MOCI), Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ) were collected by asking participants to complete questionnaires. The data were analyzed with t test and variance analysis.

Results: There was no significant difference between case and control groups regarding the prevalence of depression, anxiety, compulsive washing and neuroticism. However, there was a significant difference in checking, extroversion and lie. No significant relation was found between age, sex, education, marital status, occupation and history of mental illness with psychological symptoms of patients. A significant relation was observed between the history of suicide and the history of mental illness in the family of patients with extraversion.

Conclusion: Correlation and interaction between skin disease and symptoms of mental disorders is complicated and needs further investigations.
