    Adult acne (AA), atopic dermatitis (AD), psoriasis (P) and hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) are common chronic inflammatory skin diseases with an estimated incidence of approximately 15% of the adult population

    .

    This observational, cross-sectional, non-comparative study by five French patient associations between October 2020 and February 2021 assessed perceptions of adults with AA, AD, P or HS using a digital questionnaire stress, and self-perceived disease severity and quality of life (QoL) in large populations
    .

    The questionnaire ensured that the target skin condition had been previously confirmed by a health care professional
    .
    Stress was assessed using a validated Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) and quality of life using the DLQI

    .
    The PSS questionnaire measures the degree to which situations in a person's life are considered stressful

    .
    Individuals' scores on PSS ranged from 0 to 40, with higher scores indicating greater stress

    .
    Scores range from 0-13 for low perceived stress, from 14 to 26 for moderate perceived stress, and from 27 to 40 for high perceived stress

    .
    A DLQI score higher than 10 indicates an important or very important impact on the patient's quality of life

    .
    In addition, patients were asked to assess the severity of their skin disease (mild, moderate, or severe) at the time of the study and to confirm whether psychological support was provided for their skin disease

    .

    Overall, 7273 subjects participated in the survey; 1605 subjects had AA, 2538 AD, 2329 P and 801 HS
    .
    The average age is 40.
    6 years; 69.
    25% are female and 54.
    37% are employed

    .
    Self-assessed disease severity was moderate in 49.
    73% of subjects

    .

    In total, 66.
    3% of subjects reported a stress score higher than 27

    .
    The results of AA, AD and P showed that the more severe the condition, the higher the perceived stress score

    .
    This is not observed in HS patients

    .

    While stress levels were high in all population groups, especially those with severe medical conditions, less than 15% of patients received psychological support, and when such assistance was offered, only two patients received it
    .
    This finding requires particular attention for future patient-centred care

    .

    DLQI scores were significantly higher than the quality of life of patients with AA, AD and P, especially when the stress score was higher than 27, and healthcare professionals should be encouraged to develop different, patient-centred treatments; these results are consistent with the observed The results of the pressure are parallel
    .

    Our study shows that psychological stress is a significant problem in patients with chronic inflammatory skin disease, requiring special attention and individualized psychological support
    .
    Implementing patient-centred management in chronic inflammatory skin diseases may reduce psychological stress, potentially improve treatment adherence and improve treatment outcomes
