Skin conditions are covered thematically in five major sections:

  • Non-contagious rashes

Each condition is illustrated and concisely described along with treatment and therapy options. Background information covers the anatomy, physiology and protective care of skin. A special section explains how to care for your child's skin from infancy.

The text of Spots, Birthmarks and Rashes is detailed, specific, and very understandable to a non-medical reader.
