An overview of psychodermatology historical formation as a branch of medicine dealing with mental disorders of both dermatological and psychiatric nature is done.

The most common diagnostics associated with dermal mental disorders are atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, alopecia areata, and mental disorders such as delusional parasitosis, neurotic excoriation, trichotillomania are the the most common conditions at the presence of which dermatologists refer the patients for a psychiatrist. Only few dermatologists are ready to take liability and prescribe a psychiatric drug and make a proper psychotherapeutic support. Complex of remedial psychocorrective and psychoprophylactic measures for somatoform disorders that can be used for both general population and the patients under study is offered.
Key words. psychodermatology, psychosomatic medicine, dermatology, dermatosis.
