Abstract

The symptoms of the psychoneuroses are legion and are manifested in all branches in medicine. The well established form of treatment, namely, psychotherapy; is a valuable agent in the hands of all physicians practicing medicine. The psychologic phase of certain skin diseases should not be neglected in treatment. It appears, however, that little attention has been given to psychotherapy in dermatology. The application of medical psychology may be of considerable value in the treatment of certain skin diseases, objectively as well as subjectively manifested. A psychic cause of such common skin diseases as pruritus and urticaria should be included among the many causes of these diseases, although textbooks on dermatology make little or no mention of a psychic cause of pruritus and no mention of psychotherapy in these diseases. THE RÔLE OF SUGGESTION IN THE CAUSATION OF CUTANEOUS PHENOMENA In a consideration of the psychogenic skin manifestations, reference should be
