Self Examination





How to examine your skin:


Examine your body front and back in the mirror; then right and left sides, arms raised.


Bend elbows and look carefully at forearms and upper arms and palms.


Look at the backs of legs and feet, spaces between your toes and soles.


Examine back of neck and scalp with a hand mirror. Part hair for a closer look at scalp.


Finally, check back and buttocks with a hand mirror.
