Synopsis

Living with Skin Conditions by

The books in the Teen's Guides series provide a wealth of information on a variety of illnesses, conditions, and diseases that often affect readers in grades 6 through 12 - from cancer and depression to asthma and diabetes. Ideal for teens living with the disease or whose family members or friends are coping with it, these insightful books offer everything readers need to know to understand the nature of the disease and its consequences on day-to-day life. Each book is written by a medical professional with firsthand experience with the disease or disorder. Case studies and dramatized, real-life examples illustrate the everyday impact of living with each specific disease. Topics covered include: How does the disease function, and how does it affect the body? How can one recognize the signs and symptoms of the disease? What causes the disease? What treatments are available, and are they effective? What side effects do they have? What social repercussions can the disease have? What should one expect going through recovery or as the disease progresses?
