The British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) provides a range of resources including patient information leaflets which are written to help you understand more about a particular skin condition. They inform you what the condition is, what causes it, what can be done about it and where you can find out more information about it.
Where possible, they advise you on what you can do yourself on a day-to-day basis to help with your skin condition. They also provide information on particular treatments for skin conditions, what it is, how it works, how it is used to treat skin conditions and where you can find out more information about the treatment.
Preparing for treatment involves thinking about your routines, activities, eating patterns, habits, lifestyle, and to change some of these in order to improve your health and wellbeing.
The pages below contain information and support on factors that affect your health and recovery. These will help you to prepare for your future treatment, help you recover, take control and be involved in your care.
