Background and ObjectivePrevious large studies have highlighted the impact of psoriasis on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) but not on interpersonal touch. This survey assessed the prevalence of touch avoidance among psoriasis patients, and its relationship to clinical characteristics and HRQoL.MethodsUsing an online, cross-sectional study with a standardized questionnaire, psoriasis patients reported their level of touch avoidance. The relationships between touch avoidance, patient-reported outcome measures, and patient demographics were analyzed using linear models for continuous outcomes and logistic models for categorical outcomes.ResultsTouch avoidance was reported by 48.2% of participants. Higher levels of touch avoidance were associated with worse HRQoL, depression, and itch outcomes (p<.001 for all). The strongest indicators of touch avoidance were HRQoL score (p<.001) and depression score (p<.001).ConclusionNearly half of psoriasis patients report avoidance of touch. Those who had worse disease severity, HRQoL, and depression reported higher levels of touch avoidance.
