Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: Simple explanations of common skin ailments are provided for teenagers in this book. Using a question and answer format, the easy to understand chapters demystify common misperceptions of how to care for adolescent skin. Information about tattooing, body piercing, and treating acne and warts is of interest to the majority of teenagers.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate teenagers about how to have healthy skin and how to appropriately treat common skin problems.
Audience: Although adolescents are the intended audience, any lay person could gain some basic knowledge about caring for the skin. The book contains general information on skin care and recognizing the symptoms of infection, for example.
Features: The text is peppered with shaded boxes that contain helpful tips on therapy and skin facts. The chapter on skin cancer covers potential side effects associated with advanced melanoma treatment and the various therapies one may undergo. The authors avoid discussing sexually transmitted diseases, an oversight which hopefully will be corrected in the next edition. Teenagers are obsessed not only with how they look, but also with sex. Head lice are discussed, but there is no mention of pubic lice. Similarly, herpes simplex is mentioned, but without any mention of genital symptoms and its chronicity. A chapter on safe sex would be appropriate. This is a handy guide for young persons seeking current and accurate information on basic skin problems such as acne, infection, bug bites, etc.
Assessment: Parents may consider purchasing this book for themselves and a second copy for their high school graduate heading off to college when mother won't be around to consult.
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—A comprehensive, accessible reference guide. The first two parts cover the basics of caring for skin, hair, and nails. Part three addresses causes and treatments for acne, including safety concerns about Accutane (information on the iPLEDGE program is new to this edition). Subsequent sections cover cancer, other diseases, and how to care for injuries such as burns and animal bites. Sources for each topic include reputable Web sites, government agencies, and professional associations that are clearly cited on the first page of every chapter. The volume concludes with a reading list and organizations to contact for more information. "Quick Tips" and "Remember!!" sidebars provide reminders about detecting potential problems, adopting healthy habits, and communicating with health-care providers. A handful of black-and-white photos and drawings illustrate the content. Many chapters have been updated and/or rewritten altogether, bringing this new edition up to the minute. One stylistic change is the appearance of bulleted lists that break up long paragraphs. New topics include genetic conditions that affect the skin, hyperhidrosis, lupus, scabies, and warnings about ceramic flat irons. Gone are chapters on blushing, cat scratch disease, and dandruff. Fortunately, the text has not lost its clear, levelheaded tone. Purchase of this new edition is recommended for libraries with a strong demand for health-care resources.—Amy Pickett, Ridley High School, Folsom, PA
