Survey results for
July/September: Skin Conditions Survey August 2015
Ahead of our Online Clinic on Skin Conditions, we ran a survey to find out more about the skin conditions people are living with, the treatments they are using and how these conditions affect their day to day lives. This included responses from people with eczema, dry skin, rosacea, acne, psoriasis, and more, who answered questions about support, treatment options and more.
Here are the top highlights from the survey:
- 62% of those who completed our survey feel anxious or depressed about their symptoms from skin conditions including eczema, dry skin, rosacea, psoriasis and more
- those who had been diagnosed with their particular skin condition by a medical professional, a massive 96% were not offered any emotional support or counselling
- 24% visit their GP in a year, making skin conditions the most frequent reason for people to consult their doctor with a new problem
