DIAS, Natália Guimarães et al. Triggering factors in chronic dermatoses of children with internalizing and externalizing profiles according to maternal report. Psico (Porto Alegre) [online]. 2016, vol.47, n.1, pp. 46-55. ISSN 1980-8623.

Mothers are responsible for the health care of children with chronic dermatoses. Therefore, it is important to know the triggering events of symptoms according to maternal assessment and if there is a relationship of that attribution to the type of disease and behavioral profile of children. Reports of 13 mothers of clinic children (internalizing and/or externalizing profile of CBCL) and with atopic dermatitis, vitiligo or psoriasis were analyzed. Five categories (environmental, biological and genetic, situational, from the child’s interaction with mother/father and emotional factors) were compared by (1) type of dermatosis and (2) child’s profile. There was attribution to environmental, biological and genetic (atopic dermatitis), situational, from the interaction with mother/father and emotional factors (vitiligo). Emotional factors were attributed to children evaluated as clinical by the two profiles and by the internalizing only, but not for the externalizing. These results may help in medical decisions related to the treatment and to the pertinence of including psychological accompaniment.
