Abstract

Introduction: Psoriasis patients usually feel shame over their appearance and suffer from poor self-esteem, social anxiety, and avoidance. However, little is known about factors affecting social anxiety levels in these patients. We sought to examine the psychological, as well as disease-related factors which may affect social anxiety levels in psoriasis patients.
