Summary

The skin is the largest organ in the human body. Some skin conditions—including acne, excessive sweating, and unwanted hair growth—appear at puberty as a result of hormonal changes. Other skin conditions—such as psoriasis, ichthyosis, vitiligo, and excessive moles—can be genetic. Still other skin conditions may be caused by injury or by contagions.

Living with Skin Conditions provides all the information teens need to understand this topic, including conditions, causes, prevention, and available treatments. Helpful sidebars, appendixes, and further reading guide additional exploration, and real-life examples throughout the book illustrate the impact of living with a skin condition. This informative new guide includes up-to-date information on acne, burns, cuts, chronic skin conditions, paying for care, and much more.
