Admin DXD from Singapore asked a question

Do I need to see a psychiatrist for possible acne-related depression?

We will distribute this question to expert doctors, and notify you about new answers.


I haven’t seen a psychiatrist yet. But I’ve read about acne depression. And the signs & symptoms are there. Been breaking out since I was a teen. And I’m in my early 20s now. Avoiding people because my acne and scars is bad. Isolating myself. But it got better now as I’m seeing a doctor for my acne and scars. Is it still recommended to see a psychiatrist to check?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Dear Trisya,

Sorry to hear that you’ve been struggling with depression. Certain medical conditions, esp. those affecting the way we look, can definitely affect our self esteem and social lives.

While I’m glad to hear that your skin condition has improved with treatment, I do think it would be helpful to have a chat with a psychiatrist to find out more about your condition, and if treatment (e.g. medications or psychotherapy) can help you cope better with these difficulties.

Do let me know if you need further clarifications, will be happy to help. 🙂
