Product Description


"…The book is written by leading psychologists amd is packed full of top tips for sufferes…" (The Waiting Room, Summer 2003)

From the Back Cover

Separating truth from myth can be hard when it comes to skin problems.

Apart from medical advice, there seems to be a puzzling array of creams and potions, herbal remedies and alternative treatments. Understanding Skin Problems helps sufferers maximise the benefits of advice, from whatever source, so that they can learn to live with their condition more easily.

Written from a psychological perspective, Linda Papadopoulos and Carl Walker show that, although seldom life-threatening, skin diseases can be very distressing for both sufferers and their families. As a source of information or just as general interest, this handy guide will help you to understand the importance of the mind-body connection, and how it can help in dermatology.

HASH(0x9c290f3c) out of 5 stars Gladys FtLauderdale FL Dec 6 2010

I bought this book because my son has skin problems (eczema), this book helped me understand more about the problem and what to do.
HASH(0x9c2990a8) out of 5 stars Disappointed! April 2 2015
By Witchypoo Bats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm not at all impressed. It's got half a page of vague information on the medical facts of eczema. The rest is all psychological. Thankfully I only borrowed it from the library. I was hoping for tips on things that help with eczema life remedies, and what to do for flare-ups but it had none of this. There is not even as much as a full page on any of the other skin problems either. But there's plenty on how to form relationships and going to support groups. Not what I was looking for at all.
